ONS: "The UK is in a war for talent", Robert Half

Matt Weston, UK Managing Director at Robert Half

“The UK is in a war for talent. Businesses need to consider how they can attract, retain and develop the talent they need for their future success. Yet, just one third (36%) of businesses are offering regular salary reviews.

“Pay can undermine a firms’ ability to recruit and retain staff in a highly competitive market, however, it isn’t the only deciding factor. Opportunities to learn, feel valued, and gain additional responsibilities are all important considerations for employees’ when deciding their next career move. As a result, business leaders must ensure that employees are offered these opportunities, or they will look for pastures new.

“With as many as 4.5 million workers moving jobs this year, it’s more important than ever that businesses look after their most important assets, in a way that not only improves staff retention but ultimately, boosts workplace happiness.”
