Over Three In Four Electrical Workers Opposed To Agency workers

Over three in four electrical workers say they prefer working for a direct employer rather than through an agency, according to new survey..

Of those who say they preferred direct employment, almost two in three respondents said it was to ‘enjoy their full employment rights’.

A similar number say they preferred reliable employment and the holidays and additional benefits available when employed by a company.

The 2009 government-commissioned Macleod report found that ‘the correlation between engagement, wellbeing and performance is repeated too often to be a coincidence’. This view indicates the value of employee engagement and support initiatives – such as occupational health assessments and CPD training – to ensuring worker productivity.
