Employers’ recruitment figures on the increase

2015-03-26 Jennifer Renney-Butland posted:

The general election is just seven weeks away, and chancellor George Osborne has delivered a budget promising feel-good policies such as reducing the beer levy, and increasing public spending. His pledge to close the deficit by the end of parliament is clearly not going to be achieved although we have seen 2.5% economic growth in the last year, despite the Eurozone crisis.

Unemployment is also at its lowest recorded level since 2008 (5.7 per cent compared to 7.2 per cent in 2014) and at Renney and Co we continue to receive enquiries from businesses recruiting new staff and requiring new contracts. The number of people out of work fell by 102,000 to 1.86 million in the three months to the end of January.

Businesses looking to review their recruitment policies and procedures and make sure their contracts and staff handbooks are up-to-date should ring us for a no-obligation consultation on 01225 632240 or email us at info@renneyandco.com.
