Enhancing the professional lives of contractors & agency workers
Providing contractors with a dedicated and caring payroll service is central to Jones Howard's ethos as we recognise that they are the lifeblood of the temporary recruitment supply chain. The payroll industry has often been guilty of focussing exclusively on the demands of the recruitment agency to the detriment of the contractor, but Jones Howard embrace a radically different philosophy.
It is estimated that over 600, 000 contractors are paid via umbrella companies every week with this number destined to rise in line with the UKs ever-growing contingent workforce. Relentless shifts in macro labour patterns and the unstoppable rise of the gig economy has combined to strengthen the position of contractors who play an increasingly vital role in many sectors.
With this in mind, Jones Howard treat all contractors paid via our platform with the upmost respect and encourage meaningful communication with them on a continuous basis. Quite apart from offering a range of payroll solutions to suit their professional circumstances, we pride ourselves on adding genuine value to the relationship in the form of a free employee benefits programme and a pro-active approach to customer care.
Our enlightened approach is designed to encourage contractor loyalty not only to ourselves, but also the agencies and hirers whom we represent. The success of this strategy is measurable by the long-term relationships we have with thousands of contractors, plus the volume of referrals we receive.
