Ever wondered what local firms offer their staff in terms of salary and benefits packages? At a time when provisions for flexible working and annual leave allowance are as important to candidates as salaries, it has never been more crucial to compare the salary and benefits your business offers.
Many local businesses experience challenges when attempting to access the skilled staff they require to maintain business growth. Supporting business growth in the context of a local skills shortage remains a priority for Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce this year.
- The most recent figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) suggest that unemployment has dropped to 3.8%, the lowest level on record since 1974. At the same time, vacancies reached 837,000 in the UK, which is 11,000 more than a year earlier (ONS, June, 2019)
- It is thus unsurprising that 50% of businesses attempted to recruit staff during Quarter 1 of 2019 and of those, 60% reported that they experienced difficulties during the recruitment process (QES Q1 Report, 2019)
Hewett Recruitment & HW Chamber of Commerce created the largest salary benchmarking report in the two counties, making it easier for firms to remain competitive, attract and retain the top talent in the area.
