We have a duty to be straight and open with our staff about the Government’s planned cuts and ‘efficiencies.’
What should you say to your staff about the Government’s plans for cuts and ‘efficiencies’? As a pharmacy owner, this is something I’ve been considering since the end of December. You don’t want to scare them, but equally I feel we all have a duty to be straight and open with them. After all, the Department of Health’s proposals could have very direct consequences for all of us, if not immediately then certainly in the long-term.
