National Freelancers Day is Going Virtual
On 24th May, Chancellor George Osborne announced details on how the £6 billion of cuts in public expenditure will be achieved. But it’s not all bad news for contractors, as REC Chief Executive Kevin Green explains:
“Agency staff cuts may seem an easy way to reduce cost, but the reality is that temporary workers are critical to the delivery of front-line services. Ultimately, the focus must be long-term sustainable reform rather than short-term cuts. Agency staff are a cost-effective solution for public sector employers because they do not carry the same on-costs, such as pensions, that full time employees do. They can also be used as and when required rather than being a fixed cost.”
