Now is a crucial time to observe the workforce challenges you are currently facing in your business and to focus on how you can begin to resolve these. According to this article and recent study, two thirds of UK businesses say skills training and learning opportunities were crucial to keeping their workforce agile throughout the pandemic.
Many say continued training is vital for business growth strategies going forward and for their confidence in post-Covid recovery.
The article also goes on to emphasise the importance of management and leadership skills at this time - “when asked which technical or specialist skills their organisation needs most, Hays research reveals that 35% of UK employers put managerial and leadership skills at the top of the list.”
