Three Key Takeaways of our upcoming whitepaper- Disrupting the norm: The future of staffing and outsourcing

We will soon be releasing a new whitepaper “Disrupting the norm: The future of staffing and outsourcing”, which combines insight from both the UK representative committee and the OutSource representative committee

Here are the first of the key takeaways from the report: 

  1. The labour market is showing positive signs: Our whitepaper provides valuable insights into the current state of the labour market. We discuss the positive signs of recovery and growth, often referred to as "green shoots," that are emerging on the horizon. By understanding these trends and indicators, you will be better equipped to navigate the labour market landscape and make informed decisions regarding recruitment and staffing strategies. 

  1. Candidates hold the power: Despite the changes and challenges faced by the labour market, our whitepaper underlines that candidates still hold the power. We delve into the reasons behind this shift in power dynamics and discuss the implications for recruitment professionals. By recognizing and adapting to candidate-driven dynamics, you can better attract and engage top talent, ultimately enhancing your recruitment outcomes. 

  1. Supporting Skill-First Hiring: Our thought leadership piece emphasises the importance of embracing a skill-first approach to hiring. We explore the significant shift from credential-based hiring to focusing on candidates' skills and capabilities. By prioritising skills over qualifications, you can tap into a wider talent pool, promote diversity and inclusion, and identify candidates with the necessary skills for success in your organisation. 


We hope that reading this blog has piqued your interest and demonstrates the value it offers. The labour market is evolving, and by staying abreast of these trends and aligning your strategies accordingly, you can thrive in the recruitment and outsourcing industry.  

The whitepaper will be available to download in the coming weeks, and we look forward to hearing your feedback. At APSCo OutSource we believe in the power of collaboration and knowledge sharing to drive positive change in our industry.
