According to research the majority of employers will continue to use agency staff despite the introduction of the Agency Workers Regulations introduced this month.

Research has found that 90% of employers have said they are likely to continue using such labour and only 13% said they would reduce the number of temporary workers as a result of the new legislation.

These results have revealed how robust the market is and that the demand for agency workers remains strong. It's clear that in difficult economic circumstances there is a place for agency workers particularly for project based work.
