The UK’s response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to shape working practices and future plans for both employers and employees.

The third in our series of snapshots provides an up-to-date view of how organisations and their employers are faring during this time of continued change. We asked over 11,800 professionals their views towards the future of the UK economy, skills needed and career prospects, as well as hiring and employee movement plans for the coming months.

Read our latest snapshot to discover:

  • How the outlook on the UK’s economic recovery has changed
  • Insight into when employers plan to return their teams back to the workplace and whether employees are happy to return
  • Where hiring activity is highest as well as the skills most highly sought after
  • The job aspects most important to employees, and why employers must focus on their organisation’s purpose
