Interim managers 'are a valuable business resource'
Interim executives can have a major impact on business performance if used in the right way.
This is according to a new report from Recruiter, which this week turned its attention to the outlook for the UK interim management sector in the post-downturn climate.
The publication concluded that interim managers remain an "immensely valuable resource" for companies looking to hire skilled employees to aid their recovery from the recession.
It noted that turnaround specialists have been in particular demand since the financial crisis, with businesses calling on such experts to help salvage key projects left in disarray by the downturn.
Discussing the essential qualities of a good interim manager, Recruiter cited an impressive track record and "being able to hit the ground running", as they will often have to demonstrate tangible results within a short timeframe.
Last month, director of the IMA Institute David Harries said top interim executives leave a legacy of their time at an organisation by passing on their skills and knowledge to permanent employees.
