Skills shortages and skills mismatches are worrying issues for businesses. When employers find it difficult to recruit the people with the skills they need, there are real costs involved. These may be lost business, reduced productivity or a need to undertake additional training to upskill people. There are also implications for the workload and welfare of existing staff with increasing pressure to meet growing demand. For these reasons, Hays continues to monitor developments in skilled labour markets in which it operates. The Hays Global Skills Index is one of our contributions to that debate.
