A Bad Day For Scottish Jobs

Recommended Posts

just take a looka t the news articles

all scottish job losses

guess the end of the boom in scotland wont be far away if this keeps up.

H, Ive argued for some time that the Scots need to watch thier addiction to regulation and rule following as this all costs time and money.

I have a number of savings and investments, some held with Scots companies.

The Scots ones are ott when it comes to Money Laundering, in a way the English institutions arent. In terms of simple procedures the Scots again display rule addicition that gets in the way of me as a customer wanting quick simple transactions / advice.

With customer security questions again they are ott. Where as my English Banks and savings companies will ask my name, dob and a couple of charaters from a password, the Scots typically ask 2 or 3 more questions - very annoying, and often all I need to know is something generic - ie not pertinent to my actual account.

I suspect the Scots also take employment law to the enth degree which again isnt helpful when it comes to running a business.

Lastly, I find them very robotic. Listen to any Scottish politician. You will find that they all 'fashion conform' in thier use of language (apart from Galloway).

For example; "moving forward" "working in close partnership with" "we've put in place measures" "team building" "empowering people".

Listen also to Scots call centre staff, again they are like little robot mimicks to a far higher degree than the English. So conformist to rules and dont think outside the box.

Dogbox,

  Im sure your last post is a form of rasism. Please keep to the topic of HPC rather than berating the scots.

Del,

the day I am forced to stop making observations on the Human race, is the day Ill get off this planet.

I also often refer to the English (my lot) as chavs and spongers. Is this also racist?

Can you let me know oh great one?

Your second piece of 'censorship advice' tells me what topics I may or may not discuss. I pitty your children you control freak.

What a load of unmitigated pants you are talking.

How on earth can you reflect corporate policy upon a race is beyond me!

Exactly how do you know all the decision makers in those companies are Scottish... last time I checked they were international institutions?

Like France you mean? Thier love affair with employment rates is descimating employment.

A company is simply a reflection of its workforce so the cultural traits of that workforce has everything to do with the sucess of a nations business. China or Japan attest to this.

Scots tend to over - embrace regulation which is a direct cost. This must influence scottish employment levels.

Well that really is utter utter utter pants I'm afraid. Your "point" about France reflects a nationwide political/regulatory situation across the whole country which is in no way comparable to Scotland vs the rest of Britain. I can assure you, having started 2 companies here in Scotland, that the regulatory principles are exactly the same for British companies whether they are based in Scotland or anywhere else in Britain.

Regarding Japan, haven't they been in recession for the last 11 years... presumably that is their fault for all being Japanese?

A company is a reflection of it's ethos and policies most often driven from board level. Look to America where you have radically different corporate environments, say Amazon or Google vs IBM or Lucent. You constantly have upstart newcomers with liberal and often gung ho approaches to business vs the bureaucratic monsters mired with stifling inefficency.

To suggest that nominally Scottish international corporations such as Bank of Scotland or Royal Bank are inefficient because they have headquarters in Scotland is folly. It shows how little you really know about Scotland... have you ever actually been here? Or do you just sit around in the pub moaning about ignorant Jocko's and wondering whether we have electricity and schools yet?

LOL, you tell 'im!

To be fair to dogbox, I think he was trying to go out of his way not to offend, but unfortunately that doesn't change the fact that he was talking complete rubbish.

As for Scottish job losses, I would seriously doubt it has anything at all to do with relative efficiency. It's usually to do with having headquarters in the south east of England and having a choice of 'local' job cuts or 'distant' Scottish ones. They are going to choose Scottish jobs every time.

The same happens if your employer (like my last one) has American headquarters. Remote sites are going to be targetted first.

There are very few (large) company headquarters left in Scotland now, therefore, this is going to happen more and more.

Basically anyone from any of the places listed below is potentially a tw@t, i hope that brings an end to any racism debate, your all as bad as one another. Those who are racist and those who call racism at the drop of a hat.

You are all potentially as stupid as anyone from any of these places, you have the ability to be just as vindictive, just as nieve, just as cruel, just as smelly, just as ugly, just as plain f*ckin moronic as any of them.

Mabye you would find it less annoying if you told the staff that you were asking a generic question. If it's typical that they ask you 2 or 3 more questions, surely you would be aware by now of how they work. Give it a go. They would probably listen and advise, then you wouldn't have to through said security questions.
