    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about creating new policies and procedures ( to add to the already existing mountain) and start looking at your staff. They are the cogs to the machine.

    You have to leave the culture of having 'the club' - stop surrounding yourselves with French. UK staff are NOT "replaceable with french" if you want to continue to expand and learn in the UK market. Lose the arrogance and listen to those who are familiar with the market.

    Benefits of other contractors/companies far outweigh your own. No wonder so many are leaving for your competitors. Not just contractual benefits, but work /life balance. Offer training to those who are performing, not just those who are in 'the club'.

    There also too many managers who are promoted for their bad behavior - little work, reliance on others who already are inundated with work and their ability to fluff their successes which are actually the results of their team's efforts.

    Good Luck.
