REC Working Papers
REC Working Papers are a new series of short, high-impact research reports written for clients and produced to be shared with employers as powerful new collateral that can be used to build or strengthen relationships.
REC Working Papers showcase the importance role played by agencies in the labour market and highlight some of the opportunities and threats facing the recruitment Industry in the UK. The new Papers are one of a series of initiatives that aim to build awareness of the REC and its members amongst employers – helping ensure that more and more employers understand the benefits of working with an REC Member.
