A very interesting piece of information has come to light, which shows that Capita, which relies in part on contracted staff to deliver the PIP contract, has doubled the incentives offered to their staff, supposedly in order to clear the backlog which has accumulated since the introduction of PIP. As can be seen in the document below, a contracted HP can earn up to £6,300 a month for 21 assessments, after the report is completed. The target does not seem to be stretching it, as it represents 1 assessment per working day. Even if paying this whopping sum, Capita is still bound a make a profit.
