The trend for businesses turning to temporary workers shows no signs of slowing down.
The monthly JobsOutlook report by the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) has found that 79% of employers continue to use agency workers to plug skills gaps on a short-term basis.
REC chief executive Kevin Green believes the trend for temporary workers is continuing due to the difficulty for many organisations to find permanent staff with the skills they need to support future growth.
This comes despite the report revealing that 89% of employers planned to increase their permanent staff in the coming months and 78% planning to do so in the coming year.
“There is some great news here for our industry as recruiters continue to successfully adapt to the challenge of skills shortages, with more than nine out of 10 employers reporting they are satisfied with the quality of candidates they are being provided by recruiters.”
With organisations increasingly turning to recruitment agencies to source temporary workers, it is important for agencies deliver transparencies from their service and add value to their contracts wherever possible.
