Labour Market changes

Recent labour market statistics show that companies are looking increasingly to temporary workers in the face of current uncertainty.

Julia Kermode, the CEO of the Freelancer and Contractor Services Association said: "There has been a recent decline in the number of workers being placed in permanent roles. Uncertainty regarding Brexit is likely to be driving both the reluctance of UK plc to increase their permanent headcount and also workers' reluctance to move to a new employer.

"In contrast, as the uncertainty grows, we are seeing the flexible workforce of self-employed and temporary workers rise to the challenge and bring much needed skills to businesses on a contingent basis.

"This trend has been seen many times before, and in particular the UK's flexible workforce was widely acknowledged as enabling our economic recovery post 2008." 

At Extraman, our experience echoes these claims. Whether the uncertainty will become a thing of the past anytime soon remains to be seen.
