Tech staff body hires Quintus PA

The Association of Technology Staffing Companies (ATSCo) has appointed Quintus Public Affairs to handle its UK and EU lobbying programme.

Quintus will work on a range of issues including implementation of the Temporary Agency Workers Directive, employment agency regulation and cold calling.

ATSCo’s members are IT resource companies to which organisations outsource their tech needs.

They include firms such as Reed Technology, Lorien and Modis International and have a high turnover of temporary staff.

The trade body is keen to stave off regulations that would accord temporary workers the same entitlements as permanent staff and place limits on its members to market themselves through cold calling.

The Dutch government is due to promote the Temp Directive during its current presidency of the EU.

Quintus secured the account after a three-way pitch against APCO and The Policy Partnership.
