Staffing levels

At the close of the year under review we employed 2030 people, a 10 percent growth on the total number of employees at the close of the previous year.

Our attrition rate increased from 12.6 percent in 09/10 to 15.7 percent in 10/11 with 311 permanent staff leaving our employment. This is broadly in line with the average industry attrition rate average of 16.1 percent for the same period.
