2019 saw Ireland move to a virtually full employment status – something we have not seen since the crash of 2008. This puts additional pressure on employers to attract and retain future employees, and engage with our current people, and there is the constant drive to push productivity, and compete effectively in an environment that is more diverse and changing than ever before.
Voltedge has identified the following trends that we believe are the challenges that employers are increasingly facing going into this new year and decade. Recognising them and being prepared to confront and respond is going to be core to ensuring ongoing success and growth for all businesses.
We have developed a series of Management Development modules commencing this autumn for managers who either have not had an opportunity for Formal Management training in the past or for managers who are new to the role and need support transitioning into new areas of responsibility.
With the war on talent heating up all the time, and the lowest level of unemployment in Ireland since 2008, employers are all keen to ensure that they can attract, retain and continue to hold on to their employees.
