  • Hiring plans are at their highest since our survey began, with over three-quarters of employers planning to hire staff over the next year.
  • Challenges finding the right candidates persist, as 92% of employers say they have experienced skills shortages within the past year.
  • Skills shortages are threatening both employee morale and hiring plans.
  • Almost half of employers expressed concern about competition from other employers when hiring in the year ahead.
  • Salaries have risen to address skills gaps, but this is not enough to retain staff.
  • Employers continue to underestimate the appeal of offering a positive work-life balance to prospective employees, and the value this can have as a tactic in competing for talent.
