Throughout 2018, Datum RPO, along with its sister company, Omega Resource Group, are raising £20,000 for 20 charities, in celebration of the groups' 20th year anniversary under parent company, Passionate About People Ltd.
Building on the £15,000 the group have raised presently, Datum RPO employee, Hayley Clancy, managed to raise an impressive £660 following her 15,000ft skydive on Sunday, 9th September.
According to a report conducted by the Employment Agencies Standards (EAS) Inspectorate, complaints about recruitment agencies increased by 50% in 2018, in comparison with the previous year.
The labour-market focussed Government enforcement body received 1,261 complaints, compared to just 828 in 2017, with the majority of the complaints centred around the failure of recruitment agencies to pay their staff for all hours worked. Hospitality and healthcare sectors witnessed most complaints, totalling just under 25% of all complaints received.
On 6th July 2018, the government released a list of the UK’s ‘worst-paying’ companies throughout 2018. The original list, which included 239 employers throughout England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, was created and published on the national government website to act as a public ‘name and shame’ list.
To put things into perspective, a total of 22,400 workers were identified as being underpaid by a total of £1.44m. The back-pay identified by HMRC was for more workers than in any previous single naming list, and has generated record fines of £1.97m.
So, building on the original list, Datum RPO have developed a detailed report listing the top 100 underpaying employers, with additional information including industry, location, etc.
This report also features an analysis of the 100 employers, with graphs representing the proportion of companies based on location and industry.
So, why have we created this report? At Datum RPO, we take compliance very seriously. We ensure that your contingent workers are paid fairly and mitigate against legal and financial risks.

On 29th March 2019, the UK will leave the EU, with or without an agreement, due to Theresa May triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty back in March of last year. Since then, we've heard rumours, opinions, debates and recommendations, but ultimately, no one really knows what we're heading for on the 29th March, not even Theresa and her cabinet.
This being said, what we do know are the statistics. Released just last week, the ONS (Office of National Statistics) shared its latest figures on EU nationals working in the UK (or lack of) in 2018. According to ONS, there were 86,000 fewer EU workers in the second quarter of 2018 than in the same period in 2017, the largest annual fall since comparable records began in 1997.
