According to Legacy Insight, while deaths did drop last year following a spike in 2014/15, they did not drop as far as had been predicted. Annual deaths now stand at 600,000; 9% higher than at the start of the decade.The UK’s economy, the Bulletin says, has seen UK house prices rise by 2.5% since the Brexit referendum, while UK share prices have also risen: by 11% since July, due to a rise in British exports. This, Legacy Insight says, has been caused by a 10% fall in the value of Sterling, which has made exports cheaper. Residual legacy values are also up, according to the figures, and now stand at £58,400.  59 total views,  3 views todaycenter_img Melanie May | 7 March 2017 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

IT services firm saves £1m with online self-service HR

first_img Comments are closed. IT services firm saves £1m with online self-service HROn 15 Oct 2002 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Wipro’s introduction of an online self-service HR system has saved the ITservices firm about £1m a year. The company had suffered from slow HR processes and poor internalcommunications due to the problems involved in co-ordinating and administering12,000 staff across 10 countries. The new system includes the online company induction, e-learning, appraisals,annual leave and personal employment details, and an employee chat room. Its biggest success, however, is the online expense process that has reducedthe average time it takes for staff to receive payment from 21 to two days. Pratik Kumar, vice-president of HR at Wipro, said the improvements werepossible because e-technology has made it much easier and faster to administer expensesclaims produced in different parts of the world. “Before it was a very labour and paper-intensive process which was all signedoff from India, which was not too bad if you worked at the head office. But themajority of staff are based all over the place so expense claims had to travelacross the world,” he said. The move benefited the organisation’s bottom line by significantly reducingpostal costs, while cutting the support staff headcount in the expandingorganisation.
