As you are all well aware, the impact of Covid-19 has presented suppliers and customers alike with unprecedented challenges on a global scale.
As this is a time to come together in tackling the current difficulties faced by all, we are pleased to confirm that Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO), Crown Commercial Service (CCS), Yorkshire Purchasing Organisation (YPO) and North East Procurement Organisation (NEPO) will be working on a collaborative and coordinated response with regards to the Contingent Labour sector.
Our aim is to alleviate the impact Covid-19 poses to your workforce as much as possible. We will be sharing sector intelligence on worker rates, demand by sub-sector, location and skill set, we will also be closely monitoring and supporting our supply chains jointly, and providing both our customers and suppliers with the best guidance we can across all our solutions.
We appreciate that the immediate future is uncertain so we will look to share any intelligence we have with you, to enable your business to make the most informed decisions.
