This year's survey is based on 522 respondent organisations from the UK. It provides key benchmarking data and tackles topical issues that are high priorities for many organisations.
This insightful report, covers issues that are critical to the world of work and demonstrates how this year, organisations across the UK are faced with a fundamental challenge to attract and retain top talent.
Every day we work with employers who are simultaneously dealing with both workforce reductions and skill shortages. Confidence from employers and employees is rising, but organisations often have to go to further lengths to justify replacement hires and new appointments. This level of scrutiny means that employers have high expectations that can translate into very rigid criteria and lengthy recruitment processes. Unfortunately this can be counterproductive at a time when competition for talent is rife in many industries.
It is therefore critical for employers to understand the recruitment trends within the UK, the marketplace and their organisation and to delve into the complex dynamics between them. This year’s featured case studies from Boots and Interserve demonstrate how their creative talent development and attraction strategies are helping them to achieve their goals.
By attracting and retaining the best talent, organisations of all sizes can command commercial advantage in a demanding market. We hope that you find this to be an insightful report, providing useful data to guide your resourcing decisions.
