British Chamber of Commerce Survey on Recruitment

The REC has today challenged the findings of a British Chamber of Commerce (BCC) survey on recruitment services. The report focuses on the cost and time implications of recruiting new staff but fails to recognise the role that agencies can play.
Tom Hadley, the REC's Director of Policy and Professional Services said,
"We agree that finding the right person is an extremely time consuming exercise – in fact this is one of the key reasons for using agencies with the experience and networks to source and filter appropriate candidates."
"Employment regulations are a minefield for many small companies. The fact that recruitment has become harder means that there are more reasons that ever to draw upon external expertise. One of the claims is that businesses are dissatisfied with recruitment services. However, according to the latest JobsOutlook survey, 92% of employers are satisfied with their recruitment agencies."
