Resourcing | Why HR should train unsuccessful interview candidates

Why HR should train unsuccessful interview candidates

The skills shortage is an oft-cited problem for many businesses today.

Employers often point towards the struggles of recruiting and retaining top talent with the required skillsets. This is corroborated by stats. 2019 research conducted by Gov.uk found that employers are struggling to fill more than one-third of roles due to a severe dearth of digital skills among applications. Furthermore, the study found that more than half of employees (53%) in the business lack the digital skills needed for work. While digital competency is just one skillset that today’s wave of employer’s value, the stats illustrate that the skills shortage isn’t exclusive to digital.
