Employers urged to do more to attract British workers

Wednesday, October 4, 2017

In a recent article for the Financial Times, managing director Brian Stahelin comments on the growing issue for employers of attracting British workers into low-skilled labour.  

Recent studies by Recruitment and Employment Confederation have shown that roles in warehousing, food production and hospitality are perceived by applicants as being too lowly or too boring and difficult.

Brian said that part of the problem with attracting British workers into these types of jobs was the perception among some people that working in a factory “is just dirty, horrible, nasty, Dickensian-type work. Obviously that couldn’t be further from the truth in most cases.”
