British businesses are facing increasing difficulties in finding skilled employees.
According to a new report by the British Chambers of Commerce
55% of employers said that they find it more difficult to recruit skilled employees today than was the case five years ago. The findings reveal the true extent of the worrying skills gap among British workers.
Is the skills shortage affecting your business? If not now, what about the future?
Even if you can find the right person with the right skills, you can’t ignore the fact that employees are expensive.
To take on someone with the skills and experience of a good copywriter, say, as an employee is prohibitively expensive. This is especially true as copywriting isn’t your typical day-to-day, full-year activity for most organisations.
Pound for pound, you can invest in far better copywriting skills on an as-needed project basis. And once you realise that outsourcing other areas, you will find that you are NOT one of the statistics failing to find people with the right skills.
What do you think? I’d love to hear your views.
