Thread: HSE to oursource payroll

    Default HSE to oursource payroll

    Irish Times reporting that HSE are planning to outsource payroll operations.
    http://www.google.ie/url?sa=t&rct=j&...TXqlsXJGdYr_FA


    ''Several hundred people people worked in payroll and these could be redeployed to frontline services if the service was outsourced''.

    How can payroll staff be redeployed to frontline? Are they going to do the jobs of nurses and ambulance workers or thoracic surgeons?
    Are the people doing frontline office jobs going to resign to let the PPARS people take over their jobs?

    I smell a rat here and suspect that this could end up costing more than it does currently.

    In a normal operation if functions are being outsourced it would be usual to offer the staff involved the opportunity to
    transfer to the new company or face redundancy.

    IMPACT appear to be worried but they should realise that they cannot be made redundant and even if they are redeployed to makee up jobs on the frontline that they will still be paid. Having said that I do not believe that any worker should be treated this way. It is more honest to offer redundancy and perhaps a contribution to re-training etc.

    So will this 21st century re-run of PPARS increase payroll costs rather than reducing them?

    Yeah seems to be a pretty broad definition of frontline there.

    There is another redundancy scheme about to be announced too. Reilly is pushing them out the door.

    Next step pay and pension cuts!

    Who knows, they might be able eventually to figure out how many staff they employ?

    We really need to know the answer to this.

    Lots of companies outsource payroll mainly due to the rediculous complexity of it
    It should be a simple mater of multiplying the # of hours worked by the rate / hour - but due to Government involvement you would need a PhD in taxation law to work out how much you should give them.
    Hence many companies outsource that expertise.
    The HSE were one of the few larger organisations who tried to computerise this quagmire at huge expense - but failed - costing us, the taxpayer, a further €220m in the process.
