Are you making the most of your temps?


UK businesses are failing to make the most of temporary staff according to a new survey by recruitment consultants Angela Mortimer plc.

The survey of 100 temps and 100 organisations revealed that a whopping 88 per cent of temporary workers felt the organisations employing them were failing to use their skills fully.

And more than 60 per cent of both temps and businesses agreed that temps were as qualified or more qualified than permanent staff. Most temps were used as short-term cover for holidays or specific projects with only 10 per cent of organisations using them with a view to offering a future permanent contract.
