The slide deck from the Leadership and Innovation meeting held on 31/10/2022 is now available for our members to download.

Stephen Holliday looks at how we can use on demand pay for on demand work to empower employees, Karim Palant provides data and insight on LinkedIn’s economic graph,  and Alex Charraudeau shows the current staffing trends in EMEA.


Following the Chancellor’s first fiscal statement since taking office, we have produced a digital ‘Mini’ Budget Summary.

This summary, now available for APSCo OutSource Members, gives a useful reference to all the changes including the repeal of the 2017 and 2021 reforms to IR35 / Off-Payroll working from 6 April 2023 and the reversal of the rise in National Insurance Contributions (NICS) and the abolition of the Social Care Levy as the Government takes dramatic action to boost growth and see off an expected recession.

Company culture is having a watershed moment. It is being reshaped in a crucible fired by the pandemic, the acceleration of automation, the rise of millennials and Gen Z in the workforce, and the Great Reshuffle. Employees are demanding — and quite often getting — more freedom to work where and when they want and more attention to their well-being.

This report by LinkedIn Talent Solutions studies what happens when culture and strategy find alignment. Access it here.

The Outsourcing Glossary of Terms

There’s a wealth of terminology and acronyms used in the outsourcing community, from SoW, MSP and CWO to RPO and much more. We often talk about vendor neutral models, 1st and 2nd generation MSPs or Direct Sourcing Programmes. But while this terminology is commonplace for many in the sector it can often mean different things to different providers. As for the end clients it can often be a confusing cloud of varied outsource model descriptions that can sometimes mean different things to different people.

In order to help navigate and create a lexicon of the common terms that are used, we’ve developed a Glossary of Terms that our members can use with each other and share with their clients and wider community to help define key acronyms and outline the main features of the different outsourcing models.

Demystifying worker classification

The classification of workers in today’s ever-changing employment landscape is no easy task. It can often be difficult to identify the difference between the legal classification of a sole trader and a gig or an independent worker, for example. Knowing who in the supply chain is responsible for what when it comes to determining the status of each worker for tax and employment regulations is also no easy task.

In order to help demystify worker classification in the UK, APSCo OutSource and TalentIn – an expert in talent management strategy – have developed a free downloadable guide for those involved in the supply of talent. Click here to download.
