New free HR guide demystifies recruitment supply chains Monday 7 December 2015 PDF Print The Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) has launched a comprehensive free guide to recruitment supply models to help employer organisations make the right choice of recruitment business partner. The APSCo Yearbook – A Buyer’s Guide to Recruitment Solutions - is being distributed free to over a quarter of a million users of recruitment services. The guide includes thought provoking articles from leading figures such as: • Peter Cheese, Chief Executive of the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development (CIPD) discussing the future of recruitment • Professor Mike Lewis of Bath University discussing behavioural procurement • David Noble, Chief Executive of the Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) discussing the need for ethical supply Commenting on the launch of the guide, Nick Bowles, Head of Stakeholder Engagement at APSCo said: “The aim was to make this a working guide with information on the many different supply models, the pros and cons of using them and how to maximise their level of success. The flexible workforce, contingent labour, RPO & MSP models as well as direct sourcing and hybrid solutions all have a part to play in the success of the global talent supply chain. With the right calibre of skills and experience in increasingly short supply, making the right choice of recruitment business partner is critical. The guide also has a full directory of APSCo members promoting APSCo as a badge of quality within the recruitment profession.” “The key driver for many employers is managing the costs of direct and indirect recruitment. At APSCo, we are collaborating with both the CIPD and CIPS to support the refocus of this challenge to concentrate on minimising risk and attaining real value from a recruitment partner in what has income a much more complex supply chain – we think this guide will be an invaluable tool in achieving that.” Ends Tracey Barrett BlueSky PR 0771 2281631 Tracey@bluesky-pr.com This press release was distributed by ResponseSource Press Release Wire on behalf of BlueSky Public Relations Ltd in the following categories: Education & Human Resources, for more information visit http://pressreleasewire.responsesource.com/about.
