At last we seem to be seeing encouraging signs in the economy. GDP in Q2 grew 0.6% accelerating from the 0.3% in the prior quarter. Nearer to home the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC) and KPMG have just published their June jobs report which is consistent with the headline GDP growth. June also had the strongest growth in temp billing for seven months and largest increase temporary / contract vacancies for seven months. Billings rose in each of the four monitored regions with the strongest growth in the North and most moderate growth in the Midlands.As the economies improve we expect to see an even greater number of agencies and contractors choosing PayStream and our commitment is that we will continue to invest in people and systems to maintain the service levels we have delivered over recent years.You can count on PayStream!
