The redundancy figure was significantly reduced throughout the consultation period, the company said, as a result of affected staff being recruited into existing vacancies and new positions created in the reorganisation.

The group has put in place a comprehensive support programme for the employees facing redundancy.

 This has been a difficult and worrying time for many of our employees. However these proposals were considered very carefully and the decision to make employees redundant was not taken lightly, said NEC Group chief executive Paul Thandi. The NEC Group is not immune from the downturn in the economy and we have seen a significant drop in revenues in some areas of our business, particularly exhibitions.

He added: During the consultation, employee and Unite representatives – and individual affected employees – contributed significantly to the development of many of the proposals and I would like to pay tribute to them all for their professionalism and dignity throughout this process.
