Businesses are now in heated competition for skills

Vacancies are at an all-time high, and recruiters are finding it increasingly difficult to match available workers with job descriptions.

The world of work is being transformed, driven by rapid developments in technology, globalisation, and demographic change. Businesses in the region believe in a flexible labour market and as employers we need to be offering equal opportunities in work progression so that all workers can have the opportunity to reach the executive level.

Recruiting staff with the requisite skills to fill vacancies being created is one of the most common challenges facing IoD members. Do you experience difficulty finding the staff with the correct skills and attitude for work or to learn? Lack of staff can hinder business growth, which can lead to frustration as a Director of a business.
