The results of the research conducted by the global recruitment and human resource consultancy TMP Worldwide, which show that distribution business confidence in Great Britain is on the rise, after a tough opening to 2001 were presented in this article. However, many distribution businesses need to repair their battered reputations if they are to be attractive to prospective employees when the time comes to hire again. The research highlighted just how hard the distribution sector of Great Britain had been hit by global economic conditions. Almost four out of ten of distribution firms had made redundancies in the first half of 2002. One in five distribution firms had slashed training budgets, with 11 percent cutting staff bonuses and the same number reducing other perks such as pensions. The good news is that looking forward, the picture is far more positive. Almost 23 percent of distribution businesses questioned expect overall staff numbers to increase during the next quarter, with one in ten anticipating a decrease and a substantial 57 percent expecting no change at all.
