The troubled firm, which is losing £1.5 million a day, will put the contractout to tender in May and aims to sign an agreement this financial year. Gerry Smith, who is responsible for Consignia’s HR administration, whichcosts £60 million a year to run, said: “Currently our HR systems arepredominately paper-based. We want to equip ourselves with modern HR equipmentand processes in line with other modern employers.” The deal would include all the company’s 900 HR administration staff andprovide all areas of functional HR, such as payroll, benefits, sicknessabsence, training, and recruitment. Smith said the move would open the way for Consignia to modernise its HRsystems by increasing its use of e-HR. “The company has an intranet site, but it is not as well used forHR-type process as it might be,” he said.
