It is surprising that the fact that there are national and international skills shortages is still taking people by surprise and this really is a reflection on the inadequacy of Board level Management in not planning for the future in the crucial area of Talent Management.
As an international recruitment agency we are seeing it daily and it will get worse before it gets better as trying to close gaps is a bit like turning an ocean liner it takes time and happens slowly.
Obviously it is good news for diverse organisations who step forward to fill theses skills gaps but many business leaders are endangering there future prosperity by not reaching out to the market place in an effective manner.
It is not all about the size of your cheque book, although this helps, it is about the overall pitch that is made to candidates. long gone are the days where an employer can imperiously bellow down the phone and order up 10 Engineers or 25 welders.
We now build a picture for candidates and to be able to work we need clients that understand that it not just all about them but appreciate that quality candidates have national and international recruitment choices and that we are making a competitive pitch for their services.
Existing today are four global sectors of acute skills shortages
So Mr Chairman , what are you going to do to sharpen up your corporate act in the face of global competition for talent?
Let me give you the best tip going. Make sure your back door is securely shut before looking out of your front door.
If you don’t understand how important that is, you have no hope.
