Interim managers brought in to oversee changes

Interim
managers are predominantly employed by companies to oversee business changes,
according to a survey.

The
poll of 300 interim managers by consultancy Russam GMS finds that the most
common reasons to recruit an interim manager are to introduce new business
strategies and restructuring (16 and 15 per cent respectively).

In
all, 14 per cent of respondents cite specialist business skills as the most
common reason for employing interims and 8 per cent of interims are employed to
manage business turnaround.

Others
reasons for employing interim managers highlighted include covering the time to
appoint a permanent employee and the inability to fill a vacancy.
