The Skill Gap is Growing
Recruiting permanent and talented employees has become a difficult task to fulfill; The younger generations are less concerned about switching jobs if they don’t feel they can grow in their workplace, all the while, there’s a constant need for a “personal upgrade” that urges employees to acquire new skills outside their workplace and maintain their relevance to the job market.
Those two reasons along with others (which are summarized in our L&D industry overview report 2022), make the recruitment processes more challenging than ever.
