Talent Shortage

Talent Shortage allows us to find out which industries and professional fields are finding it hardest to find the right skills.

More and more companies are viewing the skills shortage as the biggest threat to growth. This is why we also look at how problems with finding the right talent affect company operations.

Talent Shortage provides the answers. Each year, we ask 40 000 employers in 42 countries which talents they find hardest to find and how skills shortages affect their business? We also ask how they choose to act in order to deal with the gap in skills.

This global survey allows us to measure local changes as well as global trends on the labour market. However, we can see clearly that the battle for talent is global: a talent in demand is a talent in demand, no matter where in the world it is demanded.
