As we mentioned in our previous blog, we are partnering with the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) to bring localised Labour Market Insight to their 3,000+ members, through a series of reports giving local employment trends and analysis for every LEP and Combined Authority in the England, along with Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
In the Foreword to our new Workforce Intelligence report — Using Labour Market Insight to Grow Your Recruitment Business — (which you can get for free here or by clicking on the image to the right), Neil Carberry, CEO of The REC says that good quality data and the analysis of that data is essential, not only in terms of strategic decision-making, but also in the consultancy service that recruiters provide to clients:
“I’m only too aware from my own time in search, of how a business development conversation could be won or lost based on the understanding we could demonstrate of the client’s labour market. Some of that understanding comes from experience; but backing up experience with insight is more likely to win the day.”
We caught up with Neil recently to get some more of his take on the importance of LMI in the recruitment sector, and why the REC had decided to partner with Emsi to bring some of this data to their members:
