At the recent Hereford and Worcester HR Professionals Conference attended by over 50 companies “skills shortages and how to cope with them” dominated the agenda.  Recent surveys* have shown that 74% of UK CEOs now have concerns about this (compared to 46% six years ago).  As the UK economy moves further out of recession employment levels will rise creating employee retention challenges for all employers.


With increased competition for labour inevitable there has never been a better time for companies to develop their “employer brand” and this is being promoted by CIPD.
