APSCo partners Culture Decoder to launch new study

A culture study for the UK recruitment sector has been launched.

The study aims to analyse how recruiters perceive the culture of their current organisation, what values are most important to them and how they view the recruitment sector’s culture.

In partnership with the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo), the study is powered by Brands with Values’ trademarked Culture Decoder, a three-question values-based assessment that has been used by FTSE 500 companies. 

Samantha Hurley, operations director at APSCo, said: “This study will help us all better understand how the recruitment sector has evolved and provide recruitment businesses with a clearer picture of what – if anything – needs to change in their own organisation to create a culture that appeals to future consultants. I urge everyone to share their views so we can all contribute to the future of recruitment.”

The survey takes about six minutes to take, the announcement said.
