staffbay.com: listen to businesses, Chancellor

(News) Permanent link
Ahead of the Chancellor’s Budget on 20th March, social media-based recruitment website staffbay.com is calling for George Osborne to make it easier for businesses to employ staff.

Tony Wilmot, co-founder of staffbay.com, says: “Osborne needs to start listening to businesses, many of whom are calling for a National Insurance subsidy on employees for six, twelve or even eighteen months to ease the strain they’re experiencing. This can’t happen soon enough, in my opinion, and would go some way to stimulating much-needed growth in the economy.

“Furthermore, the Chancellor should review the entire tax regime. This labyrinthine system needs to be made much simpler and easier to understand, and a flat rate should be introduced. This would leave businesses to get on with the task of creating further jobs.

“Red tape has been a burden on business for too long. If the Chancellor is serious about getting the economy moving again, then he needs to look at and reform the legislation that hinders human resources and recruitment.”
