HR handbook: how to retain top talent in a modern workforce 

Recruitment has been a major challenge ever since the pandemic. 

As of writing this page, vacancies are still 25% higher than pre-pandemic levels, meaning many businesses continue to suffer from skill gaps.  

This fact is further emphasised by recent mind-boggling stats such as 90% of UK employers are looking to recruit, yet 87% state they are struggling to fill their job vacancies.  

However, while recruitment is important, you mustn’t get tunnel vision. 

Too often, strategies focus on desperately filling gaps, in turn creating a revolving door of people – current employees feel abandoned and subsequently resign, creating a never-ending cycle of vacancies. 

What’s the answer? Well, yes, focusing on recruitment is vital, but your employee retention strategy holds equal (if not greater) value.
