Research carried out by PerDM shows that 90 per cent of companies have reported cutting costs in the last three years during and after the global economic downturn, with the outsourcing sales and marketing divisions emerging as a growing trend.
The study found that many firms are turning to specialist sales recruitment agencies to provide the workers who can help to drive their sales operations and, in turn, company profits.
According to PerDM director Ian Attwood, recruiting a specialist company eliminates work and enhances productivity and service quality, as well as delivering "exceptional" results.
"They are realising that they can work together with outsourced companies to create plans for sales growth based on their own goals and objectives and then leave that area of their business in the capable hands of experts, refocusing their attention to other initiatives," he added.
The study found that company owners expect this trend to continue, as specialist sales recruitment agencies not only have an invaluable understanding of the market, but also having the ability to target businesses best prospects and build relationships that can create rapid expansion and a repeatable revenue stream.
