Roger Tweedy, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation's (REC's) director of research, said the outlook for temporary staff remains encouraging in the UK, even after AWR came into on October 1st.
He explained that the majority of employers have not had to make any changes to their use of agency workers following AWR implementation, which suggests that the impact of the regulations is only being felt in certain specific sectors.
"The data also shows that the vast majority of businesses plan to maintain or increase their use of temporary staff which indicates that flexible working options will continue to provide an important outlet for employers and jobseekers," he added.
In late December, the REC's AWR Monitor, compiled by the organisation's Policy and Professional Services and based on data and member feedback on AWR implementation, showed that in the majority of cases the transition has mainly been smooth for UK firms since October 1st.
