Midland HR quick to quash rumours of staff meltdown

Under-fire Midland HR has dismissed talk of a meltdown in staff morale after reports that three senior members of staff resigned.

The future of the firm, which provides payroll and people management services to organisations including Virgin, Shelter and several local councils, has been the subject of intense speculation since sister company Zeda went bust last month.

A source close to Midland HR told Personnel Today last week that staff feared for their future.

“Everyone at Midland has got the jitters,” he said.

He claimed there were serious staff retention problems and said the general atmosphere was causing people to leave.

However, in a statement, Midland HR insisted it was in good shape.

“As with any business of our size, Midland HR experiences normal employee churn. Midland HR is extremely proud of its employee contributions to its ongoing success and is pleased to announce it is already ahead of its 2008 business plan forecast.”
