If the UK is going into recession, businesses cannot rely on what they've always done, says Alan Leaman, the chief executive of the Management Consultancies Association.

Talking about the MCA's report, "Dealing with the Downturn", Leaman identifies some key differences between the last recession of the 1990s and the current situation -- particularly when it comes to your people strategies.
