Centrica announced it is planning to cut around 700 management and back office jobs as it faces “growing challenges”.
Trade union GMB hit out at the firm’s boss Iain Conn, claiming his “rotten leadership” has resulted in the loss of people’s livelihoods.
The company said staff had been told about the cuts
A spokesman said: “This difficult decision was made because we need to respond to the growing challenges we face. The energy market is going through continued rapid change, competition is fierce, our energy customers are leaving us and we’re operating under a price cap.
Unions said the job losses were a “terrible blow” for the workforce.
Occupational Health News
It has long been held that being in employment benefits people’s wellbeing but how much work is good for us and at what point do we start to suffer through too much or too little work?
Researchers from Cambridge and Salford universities published a paper looking at how much paid work is needed for mental health and wellbeing
The researchers, led by Brendan Burchell at Judge Business School, Cambridge University, analysed data from 85,000 people from the UK Household Longitudinal Study from 2009 to 2018, seeking answers to two questions. What is the minimum amount of paid employment needed to deliver some or all of the wellbeing and mental health benefits that employment has been shown to bring? And what is the optimum number of working hours at which the mental health of workers is at its highest?
The study found that even a small number of working hours, of between one and eight hours per week generates significant mental health and wellbeing benefits
The researchers concluded was little variation in wellbeing between those who worked one to eight hours per week through to those who worked 44-48 hours per week.
