Flexible workers, also known as contractors or temporary workers, are currently the fastest growing sector of the working population with predictions forecasting this trend to continue over the foreseeable future.
This high growth has resulted in the Government looking more closely at this sector and introducing a range of legislation specifically aimed at this style of working.
Whilst the majority of these legislative changes have been directed at the workers there have been examples of unintended consequences impacting clients and increasing the risks associated with engaging contractors.
Making minor amendments to processes can provide end clients with a number of significant benefits including:
- Increased interest from contractors in your vacancies allowing you to source the best talent for the roles
- Overall reduction in the costs of your temporary workers
- Reduced risks associated with this sector of the workforce
Selecting the right agency to support your requirements is paramount and will not only reduce potential risks but also it is likely to reduce your overall costs.
