HR concern over money�s worth. The majority of HR directors turn to recruitment agencies when hiring, but two-thirds feel they are not getting value for money. That�s the conclusion of research carried out by HR recruitment company Resource Innovations.
Nine out of 10 HR directors use agencies when looking for new staff, while 76% use press and online advertising. Nearly half (48%) said they would like to see more support from the agencies they use, especially post-placement when they could follow up and check the new recruit is settling in.
Resource Innovations director Jane Shaw said: �The fact that agencies are not seen to offer value for money raises questions over quality and service levels.
�It is important that we strive for consistency across the industry in order to combat any negative perceptions,� she added.
Nearly half (46%) said 5% of staff left within the first three months, while 42% said they didn�t know how high their turnover was in the initial period. RECRUITER
