The Resourcing division predominately operates in the IT, Finance, and Engineering sectors.ADvTECH said its revenue and profits in FY 2018 were lifted by its African expansion strategy and the tertiary division continuing on a growth trajectory.During the year, the company adopted IFRS 15 (International Financial Reporting Standards: Revenue from Contracts with Customers), which was applied with an effective date of 1 January 2018.On 4 April 2018, ADvTech acquired Makini Group, a chain of schools based in Kenya.On 13 September 2018, the company announced that it had acquired Monash South Africa, a South African private tertiary education institution.In 2018, the Schools divisional revenue, representing 46% of group revenue in FY 2018, increased by 15% to ZAR 2.00 billion (USD 138.4 million).“The challenging South African economic climate and unsettled socio-political environment continue to impact organic growth with increased levels of withdrawals owing to emigration and financial pressures, a trend that has continued into 2019,” the company stated. “The growth in student enrolments for 2019 is largely off the back of our expansion strategy to enter faster growing economies outside of South Africa.”The Tertiary division showed growth in FY 2018 with revenue increasing by 10% to ZAR 1.71 billion (USD 118.3 million), contributing 39% of group revenue.The Resourcing division reported an increase in revenue of 4% to ZAR 670 million (USD 46.3 million).

  • UK – Interserve goes into administration after rescue deal is rejected (The Guardian)

    UK-based outsourcing firm Interserve has gone into administration, reports The Guardian. Earlier this year Interserve agreed to a rescue deal to reduce £650 million debt pile, however shareholders rejected the rescue deal during a General Meeting last week with the company’s largest shareholder, the US hedge fund Coltrane, opposing its restructuring plans. Approximately 16,000 small shareholders have lost their investment, with the business sold to hedge funds and banks via a “pre-pack” administration which means Interserve, which employs 45,000 people in the UK, can continue trading. Interserve has contracts in the NHS, including Ambulance preparation in London, supervises 40,000 offenders on probation, and is responsible for live firing exercises in Ministry of Defence ranges. The company ran into financial difficulty after delays and cancellations to key construction projects, as well as an unsuccessful foray into waste-to-energy projects that left it with huge debts, requiring refinancing to avoid failure. Accountancy group EY will manage the administration, which will be followed by a debt reduction plan. Kevin Brandstatter, Trade Union GMB’s National Officer, commented, "Ministers have learnt absolutely nothing from the Carillion fiasco and are hell-bent on outsourcing public sector contracts. Shambolic mismanagement is putting jobs put on the line and services in jeopardy. Our public services can't go on like this.” Interserve and the Cabinet Office, which oversees state suppliers, said there would be no disruption to the public services that Interserve manages and job losses were not expected in the short term and the pension scheme was protected.

  • US Jobs Report: March 2019

    Event- On a seasonally adjusted basis, total nonfarm employment rose by 20,000 in February, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) in its monthly jobs report. Temporary help services added 5,800 jobs. As growth in temporary help was not as weak as growth in overall employment, the temporary staffing penetration rate rose from 2.024% to 2.028% for the month. The national unemployment rate declined from 4.0% to 3.8% in February, partially driven by a dip in the labor force.Background and Analysis- On a year-over-year (y/y) basis (February 2019 over February 2018), total nonfarm employment was up 1.7%, and monthly job gains have averaged approximately 209,000 over the past 12 months. Temporary help employment was up 2.2% y/y, with monthly job gains averaging approximately 5,600 over the past 12 months.Of the 15 major industry groups, only seven added jobs for the month. The three that most drove total nonfarm employment growth (on a seasonally adjusted basis) were professional services excluding temporary help (+36,200), healthcare and social assistance (+22,500), and wholesale trade (+10,900). On a y/y percentage basis, natural resources/mining, construction, and transportation and warehousing continue to be the three strongest, up 6.8%, 3.6%, and 3.1%, respectively, despite all three groups losing jobs for the month.Y/y growth in average hourly earnings provided some welcome news, at 3.5% in February, up from a downwardly revised 3.1% in January.BLS Revisions- The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for January was revised from 304,000 to 311,000, and the change for December was revised from +222,000 to +227,000. With these revisions, total nonfarm employment gains were 12,000 greater than previously reported.The change in temporary help services employment for January was revised from +1,000 to -11,500, and the change for December was revised from +7,900 to +13,500. With these revisions, temporary help employment growth was lower than previously reported by 6,900 jobs.Staffing Industry Analysts’ Perspective- After a surge of over 300,000 jobs in January, total nonfarm employment growth of 20,000 was disappointing. While every now and then, we get a month that is an outlier (after growth of only 18,000 jobs in September 2017, jobs rose by more than 200,000 in each of the next two months), it would not be surprising to see weaker job growth moving forward at this stage in the business cycle, especially with the stimulatory effect of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act wearing off.Weaker trends in temporary staffing typically precede those in total nonfarm employment. While the headline growth of 5,800 jobs may not seem disappointing, it is more than offset by the downward revision to January. Given that the temporary staffing numbers are not only choppy on a monthly basis, but also often substantially revised one or two months later, it is best to take at least a three-month average, which gives modest growth of 2,600 per month. A four-month average gives 2,300.Members may download our jobs report tool by selecting the link below. Monthly Employment Situation March 2019 - You do not have permission to view this object. […]
