Couldn't happen to a nicer company
At the halfway point of a turnaround year for listing tech outsourcing ship Capita, the vital statistics are still moving in the wrong direction with top and bottom line slipping and major contract challenges noted. It's almost a year since UK-based Capita issued its first ever profit warning that forced a divisional …
It can't be long before Capita in the UK is just an HQ office
Indeed. They've outsourced their outsourcing to India. Who will, one day, outsource their outsourcing to China. At some point, after shifts in relative economic strengths, China will outsource their outsourcing to Crapita. Ouroboros. The symbol for manglement with its head so far up its own arse it can lick its own tonsils.

At least they didn't get to be Jörmungandr. That way, when they eventually do fail, Middle-Earth would come to an end. And what would New Zealand do then eh?
Outrageous. That this is the first one I mean. They shouldn't even have survived as an organisation after Aldridge (Executive Chairman at the time) was caught slipping a £1M brown envelope to the Labour Party a decade ago (he resigned).
I was nearly TUPE'd over several years before that but I insisted that being hived off to such a bunch of shysters constituted constructive dismissal. It never went to Tribunal because there was way too much dirty laundry even then.
£1M brown envelope
Come on, someone surely had to pay for IR35. Such wonderful ideas are not born out of thin air. They are carefully nurtured and grown inside the large parasitic ticks who need to make sure that no lone cowboy can ever come close to endangering their daily blood, sorry bread.
"A decade ago isn't long enough to account for IR35. That must have been something else."
According to a recruitment consultant I chatted to in the mid-80s, some Sir Humphrey decided to make a name for himself and force contractors off self-employment status, form Limited Companies instead, and be liable for both sides of NI.
As any accountant worth his salt would tell you, typical contractor rates at the time didn't warrant going the Ltd Co route; at those turnover levels self-employed status was more appropriate.
This might help
My violin is not small enough to properly express my level of sympathy.
Have they forgotten their core business plan?
2. Forget all deadlines.
3. Outsource all actual work to India to the cheapest possible bid.
4. Use ensuing disaster as example of their greater industry experience than anyone else to secure next contact.
How much more simple could it be?
Entrust....what a complete and utter joke, all that baloney from Capita in their bid response about prosperity for Staffordshire and it will grow jobs and offices and be the market leader....
Instead, all it's been is cut cut cut, sell sell sell, get rid of the catering service and sell it off, do a dodgy deal for the new building and of course, don't make people redundant, just pop them out the back door with a crappy pay off! What a complete mess....the people at the top of Staffordshire County Council and Entrust and Capita should be ashamed of themselves!
I'd name some individuals here but probably not best......good riddance to Capita i say!
which nobody needs for General Practice has a singularly poor reputation.
Their takeover of the somewhat important area of moving medical records around which had hitherto chugged along quite well, run in each area by people who thought it was important, generated lots of new work for practices with bar coding and tracking, which was odd because they then stacked up a lot of them and didn't move them on.
You really shouldn't hire them or work for them.
