REC launches Academy for Business

REC launches Academy for Business

As part of its brand new comprehensive HELP Campaign to help recruiters through the recession, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) has launched the Academy for Business, the UKs first integrated business support service.

The Academy for Business brings together for the first time in one place all the RECs training and qualifications, business partner activity along with the mentoring and start-up services previously delivered by RITE.

The academys formation has come about as a result of feedback from corporate members. While liking and using many of the RECs services, many of them found obtaining information about its business support and training was not as easy as it could be.

Also, while many REC products were highly successful, the overall offering needed to be broadened and developed specifically to help members survive and thrive during this economic downturn.

New products and services being added to the Academys remit include
a new business health-check comprising an objective, robust review of a companys strategy
a recruitment expert providing fee-earner performance coaching to help improve consultants productivity particularly crucial in a recession
courses geared towards generating new business leads and attracting new clients

Kevin Green, the RECs Chief Executive, said: The Academy for Business is an exciting new development which supplements our new account management system in making our services more accessible and more centred on members needs.

The RECs whole focus now is on helping our members beat the recession. We have listened to them and these new products, created as a result of their comments, will really give them the edge in rising to this challenge.

Judith Armatage, the RECs Director of Professional Development, commented: We have redesigned many of our development products so they meet the needs for todays market. We have also brought in new experts to deliver on the RECs behalf and have designed some totally new programmes which again are totally focussed on improving our members business performance
