Research carried out by Hudson revealed that the majority of managers think agency staff are often more focused and reliable than the permanent employees in their ranks, but are dubious about their loyalty.
However, the same survey, which measured the opinions of bosses, temporary workers and permanent staff, found that loyalty levels were exactly the same regardless of whether a worker was permanent or not.
When questioned about whether they would go permanent for the right role, 71 per cent of contract workers said they would do so – something that Mike Game, chief executive of Hudson Europe, said bosses should take heart from.
"Contractors are more than just an asset for productivity and business performance. Not only are they strongly motivated to hit the ground running from day one, they are keen to be part of the social fabric, without the hassle of office politics," he explained.
Mr Game said it is clear that some employers underestimate the loyalty and commitment of their non-permanent workers.
