Just when you thought lockdown was the great leveller of this generation, 2021 kicks up a talent crisis leaving no sector, and seemingly no employer, unmarked.
Brewing long before the pandemic, the UK’s talent crisis erupted this year with staff shortages closing restaurants; leaving supermarket shelves empty; driving up thousands in retention bonuses; and threatening a Turkey-less Christmas.
At the same time as a mass talent shortage though, the UK is amidst a talent exodus. The Great Resignation seen in the US has now come to British soil, with the number of people leaving their jobs at an all-time high.
Our cover story helps HR to prepare for whatever the job market has in store in for 2022, the many talent challenges organisations are facing and what creative solutions they’ve come up with to boost retention rates.
