Capita to appoint staff members to the board

Capita has had a hard ride recently, and as part of its plan to revitalise its operations, the company has promised to appoint up to two staff members to the board.

Workers representation on boards had been floated by the Prime Minister, but other matters and a less than successful General Election found these initiatives morphing into the limited but controversial pay reporting frameworks and Governance Code vaguely suggesting that companies should give workers a greater voice.

Although common in some countries (most notably in Germany) a form of workers representation has seen only very limited uptake in mainstream UK business, and as such the programme will be closely monitored.

According to the Evening Standard, Capita plans to give the representatives voting rights on a par with non-executive directors and will sit on audit, remuneration and nomination committees.
