Direct Employers To Meet BIS

Discussion covers the consultation process for reforming the regulatory framework for employment agencies

The Direct Employers Association Europe (DEA), the first UK based Trade Body specifically created for hiring organisations with a strong focus on the Talent Acquisition and Resourcing function as well as the in-house professionals who deliver on the recruitment agenda, is to meet with BIS (The Department for Business, Innovation & Skills) to discuss the current consultation on reforming the regulatory framework for employment agencies.

The discussions will provide BIS will direct first-hand experience from an employer's perspective.

Alan Whitford, Operations Director at The Direct Employers Association commented: "Recruitment companies are well represented and have a number of trade associations that will be providing feedback into BIS during the consultation period from their perspective this is not the case for the employers."

He went on to say "It is important we present the employers’ view and press this home as after all it is employers that are the ultimate clients of employment agencies and employment businesses.  It is in everyone's interest to create the right environment for recruiting whether that be permanent or contingent workers."

Colin Minto, Global Head of Resourcing at G4S and the first Executive Committee Chairman of The Direct Employers Association said: "BIS has a number of consultations and projects underway that we have already identified as being of interest to the members of The Direct Employers Association and we will be arranging further meetings to discuss these areas."

He went on to say "There appears to be a real appetite in Government to consult directly with employers and for them to ensure the right legislative framework is in place to create the best conditions for economic growth."

Whitford concluded  "The Direct Employers Association allows employers focussed on growth strategies to share experiences and create best practice as well as identify business and resourcing issues and raise these directly with Government. It also allows Government and policy makers a direct route to discuss ideas and policy developments with key business leaders and those directly affected by legislation."
