The past two years have made human capital leaders feel like they’ve been constantly fighting fires, forced them to not only sharpen but widen their skills quickly, and challenged them to scale, skill, and retain a workforce in the most volatile and talent scarce environments.
Randstad Sourceright’s 2022 Talent Trends research, which surveyed more than 900 human capital leaders in 18 markets around the globe, says the same. This year, just 45% agree that talent acquisition is about value creation, rather than cost savings – a 5-year low and a 22-point drop from last year. At the same time, more than one-third (36%) are already seeing increased costs and a negative impact on their bottom line due to talent scarcity.
