Good Management Takes Responsibility
This article sums up perfectly the issues facing the Sopra Steria Government sector.
Whilst everyone accepts that difficult decisions need to be taken, the way in which recent decisions were implemented were incompetent at best. The government sector has been left with a team suffering low morale, depleted knowledge of key government customers and critical systems/processes. As a result Sopra Steria is now struggling to turn around the decline and has managed to accelerate it.
I worked for the company for over 20 years and it was with great sadness that I decided along with others to leave following the recent redundancies and changes to top management. This article further highlights that management remains oblivious to the knowledge vacuum and morale issues that they have created. Without an experienced motivated workforce it will be difficult to quickly rebuild the sector.
Continually blaming hard working staff is not the answer, good management takes responsibility and leads from the top.
