KPMG & REC Report on Jobs July 2022

"As Neil Carberry says, very sensibly, the pace of growth was always going to be temporary.

"Hiring is happening. It's tough and it's slower than usual but it's occurring.

"And if businesses are struggling to fill the critical vacancies they have unfilled there's merit in understanding why that is, what they can do better or differently and self-reflection.

"Are you expecting too much from your new hire? Is your offering (remuneration, flexibility, opportunity for progression) attractive? Are you committed to hiring? Are you moving at a fast enough pace to secure the people you need? Do you have the skills required to hire successfully?"
