KPMG & REC Report on Jobs February 2022
"It's a crazy marketplace.
"One with such an acute shortage of people on the move that businesses who cut deep in 2020 only to rehire in 2022 are now having to pay higher salaries than ever before.
"Jobseekers are making additional demands too, with hybrid working expected as the norm and working from home highly desirable for many.
"Demanding your team return to the office five days a week means that in 2022 you are no longer an understanding employer with a great culture. Not only are you reducing the potential talent pool for your vacancies in a big way, but it's also only a matter of time before you lose some of your best people. Your competitors are probably already talking to them"
