The Randstad Sourceright 2018 Talent Trends Report finds that businesses are ready to invest in improving their workplace experience. Over 50% of the 800 C-suite and human capital leaders surveyed plan to enhance their technology resources this year.
CEO Rebecca Henderson states that “beating the competition for talent in 2018 begins in the workplace.” This is due to “record low unemployment levels and a growing skills gap” which require employers to enhance their offerings in order to “retain top employees and attract potential talent.”
New incentives, global sourcing strategies and a trend toward the increasing use of contingent workers are also changing the ways that forward-thinking companies will attract talent. All of these things can help employers “improve their workforce agility, retain top employees and increase their employer value proposition to better manage talent and drive overall business growth,” says Henderson.
