In 2017 40% of employers globally reported having difficulty filling position – a 2% increase since 2015. Where once the talent pool was brimming with new candidates, we’re now facing a growing talent shortage, and the problem isn’t just recruitment – it’s a business problem too because profitable growth depends on attracting the best people.
Your Recruitment Strategy
Today, traditional methods of attracting and retaining employees such as offering high salaries and material benefits are no longer the most significant factors. The UK workforce is changing and becoming even more diverse, and as our population ages and the retirement age increases, our workplaces must appeal to a multi-generational audience of employees: Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials and now the new Gen Z. With an age range spanning more than 50 years each have different interests, responsibilities and commitments. They no longer can be considered just employees but also parents, grandparents, carers, children and more – and they want to join an organisation which sees them as these people too.
Offering meaningful benefits which support people and enable them to thrive both at home and at work means recruiting more great people and ensuring the continued success of your business.

Through years of experience with a wide array of industry sectors and their employee populations, we’ve honed a process which clearly identifies employee needs, matches them to organisation’s goals and provides an investment impact toolkit to ensure all stakeholders believe in the right solutions.
