INTERIM MANAGEMENT SECTOR VOTES TO STAY IN EUROPE

-IMA research reveals interims managers are a valued export-

The majority of the interim management provider community wants to remain in Europe because they believe being part of the union is good for business.

In a recent survey[1]conducted by The Interim Management Association(IMA), which represents the interim management provider industry, 79 per cent of respondents voted to stay in Europe, while only 21 per cent said they were happy to opt out of the union.

IMA chairman and managing director of Russam Interim, Jason Atkinson, said the support for Europe was due to interim managers increasingly working on the continent, where their talents were in demand.

“The UK has the most established interim market globally, and the poll has highlighted that interims are a good export of talent,” said Atkinson.

“These top-flight executives have a strong understanding of governance and many also have strong language skills, enabling them to take their skills to new markets.

“The majority of those working in other territories tend to be posted on assignment within Europe, with a handful operating in parts of Asia.

“Both Germany and the Netherlands are very receptive of overseas talent. Germany, as an example, has more relaxed employment legislation than the UK – making it easier for business to make quick decisions around talent.”

[1]Survey ran on the Interim Management Association’s website throughout February-April2013. A total of 615 responses were received.
