people are your greatest asset

According to our Talent Trends research, 88% of employers in UK say that talent acquisition is one of their business leaders’ top priorities. It’s no surprise why. Talent is how your company innovates, grows, cares for customers and sells. People are how your organisation realises its purpose. They are your competitive advantage. 

At the same time, the skills gap and talent scarcity are standing in your way. In fact, 92% of employers say this is a major concern for them this year. Unemployment in UK is the lowest it's been in decades, and the tight labour market may only get tighter with so many questions about Brexit unanswered.
