The BBC™s HR director is to quit amid pay-off row.
Adams, who is paid £320,000 a year, announced that she was standing down at the end of the financial year after facing accusations that her department was engaged in œcorporate fraud and cronyism”.
The National Audit Office (NAO) found that since 2005 £60 million has been paid out to the corporation™s senior managers. Around one fourth of the cases were also reported to be more than the state-broadcaster had to pay out under the staffs™ contracts.
Earlier this month, the BBC‘s director general Tony Hall admitted that the corporation™s golden payoffs to senior staff have created an œappalling divide” between staff and management.
Hall said he understands the employee™s anger at severance payoffs, according to which the corporation has paid about £25 million to 150 of its high-ranking personnel since 2010 but defended the payments to those who are right for the job.
