Staffline to declare strength of PeoplePlus at AGM
Staffline's chief executive, Andy Hogarth, will declare the strength of PeoplePlus at the company's annual general meeting today.
At the meeting, Hogarth will make the following statement on current trading:
“Following the transformational year of 2015, Staffline has continued to make excellent progress in the new financial year.
“In particular, having entered 2016 with a record new business pipeline, our staffing division has further built on this momentum, with continued strong performance in the year to date. Demand from our customers for flexible labour has continued unchanged despite the introduction of the National Living Wage in April.
“In PeoplePlus, the group’s employability division, we are seeing the benefits of the integration of A4e, completed ahead of schedule last year, deliver tangible improvements in our Work Programme Contract performance.
“As a result, we are pleased to confirm current trading is in line with market expectations and the board remains confident of the group’s growth prospects.”
