According to a poll carried out by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, 70 per cent of UK firms are now aware of the rollout of AWR on October 1st this year.
However, only ten per cent have made the necessary changes to deal with the implementation of the regulations, with 42 per cent considering their options.
Gillian Econopouly, the REC's head of policy, said these figures underline how important it is for recruiters to be engaging with clients.
"For some employers, the AWR has been a catalyst for a more fundamental review of how they use flexible staff, with many businesses planning to actually increase their use of agency staff over the next 12 months," she added.
Earlier this month, the government published its final draft of guidelines for AWR, which are intended to help companies prepare for the October 1st implementation date.
