The report also showed that 46% of contractor clients across the board plan to hire more contractors over the next four to twelve months and that the skills in most demand are in core contractor sectors such as the technical/engineering and professional/managerial fields. These match the skills shortages in the permanent recruitment space, and the survey highlights that this means there is “an acute need for these skills”.

“Business confidence continues to grow and it is excellent news to see employers planning to hire more people,” adds REC head of policy Kate Shoesmith.

Managing contractor’s access to a company’s site can be a very fast and trouble-free process, especially when having a specialized, computerized system installed.

Tensor’s advanced Access Control and Visitor Monitoring software registers each visitor, both on and off site. The document scanning facility allows your organisation to make scanned digital copies of special identification documents, accreditations, licenses or insurance documentation provided by the visitor or contractor.

Once recorded onto the system, these documents can be retrieved, viewed or recreated and printed on demand. This ensures the proper due diligence procedures have been followed.
