Are standards important?
To those outside the industry, it may come as a surprise, especially when the government is set on reducing the regulation of agencies, with further announcements expected this month.
In a £25bn per annum industry, reputation counts and it only takes a few to damage excellent services provided by the many, so the challenge is how to actively demonstrate your own good standards to both hirers and candidates in a climate of deregulation.
Conference members had discussed how hirers and candidates can unfairly see recruiters as poor value for money, an image they know is inaccurate and want to see quashed.
Managing Director of the recruitment, compliance and legal consultancy Lawspeed, Adrian Marlowe, addressed the subject head on commenting “Whilst a reduction in regulation is welcome overall, nobody wants to see a reduction in standards. Good quantifiable standards benefit the industry as a whole”.
Lawspeed will be holding a seminar on the 19th November in London to discuss the latest government proposals and the future for standards in recruitment.
