KPMG & REC Report on Jobs May 2021

"This is great news and should be a continuing trend, especially since Boris has now announced that lockdown will indeed ease further on Monday and hugging is finally permitted! Although not in the workplace, you understand.

Claire Warnes at KPMG makes an interesting and valid point around skills shortages. For too long businesses have complained about the lack of talent whilst failing to invest in their own people and their industry. For example, if a whole sector decides not to take on trainees in a period, say 2020/2021, where does that leave their industry in three year's time?

It's very much 'crunch time' - invest in your people now to thrive in the future or you only have yourselves to blame."
