Carlisle Managed Solutions pledges support for APSCo’s RPO and MSP Code of Conduct
Carlisle Managed Solutions- a leading recruitment outsourcing specialist, and part of the Impellam Group– pledges support for the recently launched APSCo RPO and MSP Code of Conduct.
The APSCode – created by the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) - represents the interests of all parties involved in the Recruitment Supply Chain and seeks to address the uncertainty over contractual relationships between Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO)/Managed Service Provider (MSP) and recruitment firms. The Code asks that any contract drawn up between a recruitment firm and an RPO/MSP should include a backstop date at which payment to the recruitment firm should be met, or for the staffing company to have direct recourse to the end user client for payment.
Carlisle Managed Solutions joins an ever increasing list of high profile RPO/MSPs who have also pledged their support to ensure best practice in the recruitment supply chain.
Annelise Smith, Head of Implementations and Supply Chain Management, Carlisle Managed Solutions said: “We are delighted to be a founding part of this initiative and to look to raise the standard of practise in our industry. As a business we don’t use pay when paid clauses and so it is gratifying to see that the industry will now start to adopt this approach more widely. We welcome moves to increase professionalism and look forward to working with APSCo and the other signatories in delivering this dream”.
Ann Swain, CEO of APSCo said: “We are excited that the APSCode is gaining support so quickly since its launch in May. To have the backing of Carlisle Managed Solutions, who are clearly a quality provider and part of one of the largest recruitment groups in the world, demonstrates a real appetite from professional recruitment companies to ensure best practice in the Recruitment Supply Chain”.
