In the present economic climate, it is incredible to think that UK unemployment sitting at its lowest level since 1974, job vacancies are close to a record high, and shortages abound. How can employers of shift-based ‘deskless’ workers fill these vacancies in a cost-efficient manner without jeopardising quality of recruitment and hire.
Peter Banks, Managing Director and Founder of theHRDIRECTOR highlights, “In the present climate the key is to continue to invest in your current workforce while also ensuring you have the right strategy and resources in place to attract external talent.
The latest webinar from theHRDIRECTOR is taking place on the 6th December between 2.00pm to 3.00pm and will focus on “COST-EFFECTIVE WAYS TO BEAT THE TALENT CRUNCH IN ‘DESKLESS’ WORKPLACES” whereby standing out from the pack by prioritising the employee experience and broadening the talent pool by connecting with hiring people of diverse backgrounds and then building an inclusive culture where people can both thrive and develop.
Peter goes on to say, “The biggest expense to any business is staff whether it is recruitment, pay, benefits or retention. We are living and working in much changed world and whilst it is vital that all businesses closely remain competitive on remuneration, they also need to focus on career development with employee reskilling, cross-skilling and upskilling. Deskless workers represent a large proportion of many workforces today, so there is an opportunity to engage with existing talent by using marketplaces to improve employee mobility and smart technology to optimise rosters and empower employees to choose the shifts that suit their personal circumstances”.
