The Challenges for 2020 are Increasing
The employment market is becoming increasingly more challenging...
The drivers of challenge are varied and include;
✅ An ageing demographic and the need to find good quality replacements.
✅ Wage inflation is greater than CPI for the first time in a number of years and the increased risk this will have on employee retention.
✅ An employment market arguably at full employment and the mobility & aspirations of the workforce.
✅ A legal & ethical obligation to resolve pay diversity issues (wider than just gender diversity) and the impact this has on recruitment, retention & employment costs.
✅ Skill shortages & the impact on achieving strategic objectives --> wider than just technology skills, it covers all disciplined.
✅ A need to be transparent, fair, equitable & consistent in the way all staff are treated, especially when it comes to opportunity, development, training, recognition & reward.
We’re not saying we have all the answers, but we definitely have a broad perspective drawn from working with many organisations facing these issues.
