Outsourcing

The management of contingent workers can be extremely demanding, especially when it isn’t the main focus of your business. For recruiters this is a familiar dilemma, as both the administrative burden and the risks on non-compliance increase.

Time and resources spent in administration and compliance activity are time and resources not spent placing candidates and earning fees. For example, your staff might find themselves:

Pension

All UK employers are required to provide a workplace pension scheme for their employees, and as your employer Orange Genie are no exception. We take our responsibilities as your employer very seriously indeed and accordingly, once you’ve been in our employment for three months you will be automatically enrolled on our workplace pension scheme.  

The legislation sets out minimum contributions for you as an employee and us as your employer, to ensure that every UK employee has the opportunity to save for retirement.

Onshore Employment Intermediaries Legislation

In 2014, the government reacted to perceived abuse of employment status rules in the construction industry by enacting the Onshore Employment Intermediaries Legislation. At the time the introduction of the new rules caused widespread fear and uncertainty. For example, we saw providers saying it was “impossible to prove a negative” so “all CIS workers must switch to umbrella employment”. This is clearly not the case, as we’ll explain below.

Umbrella Company

If you’re working for an umbrella company for the first time, you’ll notice that your pay documents contain more information than you’re used to seeing as a conventional employee. It’s important that you understand your pay, so in this article we’ll take a close look at your Orange Genie pay documents and what they mean.

Umbrella company

Partnering with the wrong umbrella company could be disastrous for your recruitment business, and we’re not just talking about non-compliant companies. Many key skills are in short supply, and recruiters stand or fall on their ability to attract and retain high quality workers while controlling cost and risk. If your umbrella company isn’t helping you meet the challenge it might be time for a change.
