No rest for the interim!

No rest for the interim!

The arrival of the Olympic Games in London has promoted a mass exodus of staff in some sectors and industries. However, against this backdrop, interim managers are staying at their desks, finds Alium Partners, a leading provider of senior interim executives.

Over half of the respondents to the monthly & lsquo;Alium Asks’ poll said that they would not be taking a break during or around the Olympic and Paralympic Games period.

Nigel Peters, Managing Director of Alium Partners, said: “Many workers across the UK have taken advantage of the London 2012 Games to book time off work. However, due to the nature of their assignments, professional interim managers make sure to plan their breaks well in advance of taking on a role. Interims are hired to achieve particular business outcomes in specific time frames, and thus must make sure that they are present exactly when needed, causing the minimum of disruption to the host organisation.

“Moreover, these results show the commitment that is typical and necessary of today’s professional interim manager. Though we are currently operating in a depressed business environment, often punctuated by inaction, risk and caution, the ability of interim managers to deliver is proving absolutely vital.”
