The Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) has called on the government to recognise the skills which temporary workers can bring to organisations, including those in sales recruitment.
Tom Hadley, the REC's director of policy and professional services, said that agency work is a "core element" of most cost-effective resourcing strategies but is often regarded as an "unnecessary cost" which can easily be cut.
He explained: "The reality is that agency staff are often highly trained professionals providing specialised skills and making a huge contribution to frontline services."
However, Andy Dickson, head of global sales at Impact International, recently said that in the present economic climate it is vital companies measure the cost of taking on new staff, such as sales recruitment candidates, against the financial benefits they can provide during their time with the firm.
