Recruitment profession has a vital role in supporting the Scottish economy, APSCo report finds
The recruitment profession has a vital role to play in supporting the growth of the Scottish economy. That is according to the latest report from the Association of Professional staffing (APSCo): Professional Recruitment: The Beating Heart of the Scottish Economy.
The report which discusses the future of work in Scotland and features insight from recruitment leaders including Managing Director of Bright Purple, Paul Curry, CEO of BE-IT Resourcing, Gareth Biggerstaff, and Director of Aspen People, Nigel Fortnum, also highlights the importance of flexible working, and the role of APSCo members in boosting productivity and dynamism in the labour market.
With a recent report from the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) revealing that Scotland is facing challenges in the supply and demand for skills, APSCo’s research also explores how apprenticeships, self-employment, and the impact of Brexit will influence recruitment and how the role of the sector must be recognised as a driver of productivity.
