That is according to the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, which said recruiters who are prepared for October 1st, when the regulations are implemented, will gain an advantage over their rivals.
Louise McCarthy-Teague, director of Meridian Business Support and an REC council member, said successful education of AWR to support the industry will also mitigate the operational and financial risks associated with it.
"If handled correctly, this will further shape the industry and maintain its high value consultative service as opposed to a saturated and client-led industry," she added.
Recently, Gillian Econopouly, head of policy at the REC, said there must be collaboration between recruitment agencies and clients if both are to adequately prepare for the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR) being implemented on October 1st this year.
