Personnel management systems help streamline temporary staff management
Solid and reliable personnel management systems are a must for companies planning to shift their focus from permanent positions to temporary staff following the Brexit vote – which seems to be the trend nowadays, according to an extensive study of recruiters.
The Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) report, compiled by Markit, found that nearly 38 per cent of recruiters placed fewer people in permanent positions in July, compared with 32 per cent in June.
Nursing, medical and care was the most in-demand category for permanent and temporary staff during July. Furthermore, permanent construction workers saw a decline in demand for their services, and executive and professional staff were least likely to find temporary roles.
REC chief executive Kevin Green said: “The UK jobs market suffered a dramatic freefall in July, with permanent hiring dropping to levels not seen since the recession of 2009. Demand for staff remains strong with vacancies continuing to rise, but the sharp fall in placements suggests that businesses are highly cautious about committing to new hires. Economic turbulence following the vote to leave the EU is undoubtedly the root cause.
“The record-high employment rate and ongoing skills shortages have made it difficult for employers to find suitable candidates for the roles available in the past, and this remains the case. We’re now seeing the added problem of individuals deciding to stay put rather than change jobs in the current environment.”
