Recruitment agencies 'play a big part' in flexible working

The role that flexible working plays in the UK labour market must not underestimated, nor should the part that recruitment agencies play in helping these staff to gain employment, it has been claimed.

That is the opinion of Gillian Econopouly, head of policy at the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, who has welcomed the government's acknowledgement that the likes of sales recruitment organisations are key partners for employers in creating a truly a flexible workforce.

She was speaking after the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills' Modern Workplaces consultation, which highlights the importance of flexible work to the economy and the role that recruiters and the business community must play in building a modern workforce.

Ms Econopouly said that to create a fully flexible workforce, however, the government must balance the aim to increase flexibility with the need to keep regulatory burdens low

The expert noted that the most innovative and flexible solutions are achieved when businesses and their staff work together to adopt "mutually beneficial working arrangements", which will not happen by simply creating new regulations.

She added: "There is also a key role for recruiters in this process, not just by placing candidates but also in providing expert advice to their clients on managing workforce needs, and demonstrating the benefits that a flexible working environment can bring."
