Hiring on the up as business confidence grows

(2 minutes to read)

Robert Half: ‘The war for talent is only going to get fiercer over the next 12 months, businesses must think about how they can compete and prepare to negotiate. If employers assume they’re in the driving seat and are slow to act they will miss out on top talent’.

As many as 66% of UK businesses are feeling ‘somewhat to more’ confident about their growth prospects over the next 12 months compared to the previous year.

And, according to the Robert Half report, the findings show that there has never been a better time to secure a new role.

Robert Half’s 2022 Salary Guide, which looks at projected salary ranges, benefits and hiring trends, found that demand is particularly high for those with hybrid skill sets, as well as digital skills that will help businesses to keep up with the pace of transformation and automation.

Matt Weston, UK Managing Director at Robert Half, commented, “We’re currently seeing demand above and beyond pre-pandemic levels, and despite the so-called ‘Great Resignation’ creating a tsunami of turnover, we are still experiencing a saturated market where the demand for skilled talent outstrips the supply.

“The war for talent is only going to get fiercer over the next 12 months, businesses must think about how they can compete and prepare to negotiate. If employers assume they’re in the driving seat and are slow to act they will miss out on top talent.”
