Why increasing pay can help employers source the best talent

Gaining the interest of some of the top talent out there is not easy. With every business claiming to offer some of the best workplace perks and benefits available it’s no surprise to hear that the average salary has increased to keep employees and potential candidates interested.

In fact, advertised salaries have climbed to a seven-year high, according to the latest UK Job Market Report from job search engine Adzuna, reportedly driven by a talent shortage. This follows a dip in competition for jobs, falling to a record low with almost four vacancies per jobseeker across the UK.
