All contractors were accessed on an “individual” basis - not true. The reality is: if you are Software Developer you’re offered perm or inside without change of daily rate; if you are Developer Engineer you’re offered a perm; if you are friends with the right people then you’re outside; 10x HR is the poorest HR department that I’ve seen in 20+ years of my carrear. The majority of contractors are leaving at the end of March. It is a sinking skip.
Unfair assessments everyone is told they will be inside. People are leaving or willing to leave, looks like the ship is sinking. Even the new permies are not happy.
There is even a name for the exodus, 10xit.
They are using a blanket assessment per role, without looking at individual working practices. Many contractors are refusing to move inside IR35 or to become permies so disruption is expected. HR don't seem to realise what the effects of losing their workforce will be and seem to think software engineers are as easy to replace as broken light bulbs. The atmosphere is very chaotic.
