HAYS CALLS FOR SUPPORT TO BE PROVIDED TO PUBLIC SECTOR WORKERS

HAYS CALLS FOR SUPPORT TO BE PROVIDED TO PUBLIC SECTOR WORKERS

Hays, the leading recruiting expert, responds to the CIPD’s call for Government to temporarily halt public sector job cuts. According to Hays, the UK runs the risk of exacerbating problems if it does encounter a double-dip recession unless support is offered to public sector workers.

Andy Robling, Director at Hays, says, “The public sector is being transformed at a time when it needs to deliver more services with less resources, but there is no escaping that cutbacks are necessary to reduce the deficit. The Government must act now to ensure public sector workers are prepared for these cuts, making sure those who are being made redundant are in the best position to find new jobs.  Failing to do this will not only leave public sector workers disadvantaged because they can’t easily move sectors but could exacerbate problems if we face a double-dip recession.

“Our research highlights the major challenges public sector workers are going to face when looking for a job in the private sector and more needs to be done to support workers through this transition. Failing to provide this support could limit the ability of ex-public sector employees to return to the labour market thereby risking an even greater increase in long term joblessness and blocking the private sector from the skilled workers it needs to stimulate growth.”
