In Ireland almost 4 in 5 employers (79%) reported difficulties in recruiting talent to their business according to the latest research from ManpowerGroup's employment outlook report. We are seeing unprecedented times for Talent Shortage numbers, with a record 79% of employers having difficulty in filling jobs due to lack of skilled talent. Comparing to 2010, this is an increase of 71 percentage points.
Large and small sized firms are having the most difficulty in hiring talent at 85% and 83% respectively. However, evidently businesses across the board are struggling with medium and micro sized companies also reporting difficulties.
