As admirable as it is that our County Council are reducing their headcount of managers I fail to see how they needed so many in the first place. click here On current figures it works out at one manager for 5.6 workers and even when the dust settles there will still be a manager for every 7.75 workers. No company that I have ever worked for in manufacturing has ever had that few heads per manager, and I include foremen in management. Are council workers unable to think for themselves and need that many managers or is it too much paperwork, or, heaven forbid, the result of empire building???
I think you will find this refers to only those in the lowest levels of management, the senior management layers will still remain intact to carry on the tradition of employing more and more managers to look after less and less workers and provide less and less services
