Irish Talent Shortages Deepen as Firms Suffer Worst Talent Shortage in a Decade.


— 27% of Irish employers are unable to find the talent they need
— 3 in 4 large Irish organisations report difficulty in filling positions
— Recession emigration leaves its mark as talent within Construction, Engineering & Sales sectors struggle to keep pace with recovery
– Irish businesses report the worst talent shortage since the survey began in 2006, according to the latest research released today by ManpowerGroup.

The skills gap increased by more than five times over the past decade; jumping from 5% in 2009 to 27% in the latest survey. Organisations with over 250 employees are experiencing the most notable skills deficits: 75% are unable to fill their open roles. Conversely, organisations with less than ten employees fare much better in the war for talent, with only 18% reporting difficulty in filling roles.

Now in its 13th year, the Talent Shortage Survey finds that from over 1,000 employers across Ireland, the Skilled Trades sector (electricians, welders & mechanics) is suffering the most acute talent shortage. Sales & Marketing (sales reps/managers, graphic designers) remain the second hardest positions to fill, consistent with 2018; while the Office Support sector (administrative assistants, PAs, receptionists) rises in the talent shortage rankings from eighth in 2018 up to third hardest to fill roles this year.

ManpowerGroup Ireland Managing Director, Chris Gray, says: “With the continued need for Ireland’s housing and transport infrastructure to meet the demands of a fast growth economy, the critical engineering skills to deliver these projects remain in short supply. The last recession led many qualified and skilled professionals within the engineering sector to emigrate and simultaneously impacted on numbers of students enrolling in engineering courses. The recovery in terms of talent to deliver engineering-led solutions has not kept pace with the need itself, thus highlighting a clear talent shortage within this area. With these growing talent shortages across Ireland, it’s no longer a question of simply finding talent; we need to build it again.”

“Other sectors which have seen significant shifts in recent years are Sales & Marketing, Customer Contact Centers and Office Support. As more multinational organisations choose Dublin as a hub to host their European HQs the demand for experienced and often multilingual, sales, technical and administrative professionals has grown. However the high cost of living, in particular housing costs, has limited the draw of Dublin for relocation so many of these roles are left unfilled.”

Gray continues: “As part of our survey, we’ve also examined what candidates are really looking for in order to give employers boost in their ability to attract and retain the best talent. What we’ve found is candidates are seeking more meaningful work and to create One Life, the balance of work and home. Whilst salary size remains a decisive factor for the attraction and retention of workers, demands for workplace flexibility continue to gain importance across all age demographics, as do businesses with a strong purpose. Businesses must be agile in embracing the preferences of candidates to shore up access to the skills they need; embracing these preferences to help safeguard future talent pools.”

Closing the Skills Gap: What Workers Want reveals what attracts people to an organisation and what makes them stay so that businesses can find, build and keep the best talent. It finds that what workers want varies by gender and at different stages of career cycles:
Gen Zs (age 18-24) are ambitious, hungry for cash and career development, yet already, women and men have differing desires. Women prioritize pay twice as much as their next priority — developing skills — while men say skills and career matter almost as much as pay.
Millennials (25-34) want flexibility and challenging work; women say flexibility is a necessity, whereas it’s still a nice-to-have for men.
Younger Xers (35-44) are on a quest for balance. Men prioritise flexibility as much as women and want the ability to work remotely, their share of parental leave and a flexible start and end to their day.
Baby boomers (age 55-64 and 65+) are driven by pay, challenging work and flexibility though they place the highest priority on leadership and teams. Older workers want to pay it forward: the over 65s are most motivated by purpose.

When trying to attract talent, getting it right first time is crucial. What attracts workers to an organisation can also be what engages and makes them stay.

To understand what workers want, employers should:
o Get creative about compensation
o Assess fit for potential
o Build a culture of Learnability
o Create flexibility that allows One Life
o Be more transparent about your Why – bring employees on the journey with you

ManpowerGroup Named Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality in U.S. for Fourth Consecutive Year

MILWAUKEE, March 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) has been named a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality for the fourth year in a row in the Corporate Equality Index (CEI). CEI is a national benchmarking survey focused on corporate policies and practices awarded by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.

"Putting hundreds of thousands of people to work every year is only possible because we embrace diversity of thought, culture and background," said Chris Rowland, ManpowerGroup's Global Diversity Officer. "We're proud to be recognized as a leading employer for LGBTQ equality. We believe businesses have a responsibility to be a positive contributor to societal change, and that means intentionally building diverse and inclusive workplaces. We all have a role to play to ensure people feel comfortable bringing their best selves to work."

The 2019 CEI rated over 1,000 businesses in the report, which evaluates LGBTQ-related policies and practices including non-discrimination workplace protections, domestic partner benefits, transgender-inclusive healthcare benefits, competency programs and public engagement with the LGBTQ community. ManpowerGroup scored 100 percent in all of CEI's criteria.

The report recognized ManpowerGroup as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality, highlighting:

  • The equal employment opportunity policy that includes sexual orientation and gender identity expression for all operations.
  • Transgender inclusive benefits to company benefits plan, including spouses and domestic partners.
  • A supplier diversity program that supports the inclusion of LGBTQ vendors and suppliers.
  • Elevate: an employee Business Resource Group that works to foster an authentic work environment inclusive to all employees regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

"The top-scoring companies on this year's CEI are not only establishing policies that affirm and include employees here in the United States, they are applying these policies to their global operations and impacting millions of people beyond our shores," said HRC President Chad Griffin. "Many of these companies have also become vocal advocates for equality in the public square, including the dozens that have signed on to amicus briefs in vital Supreme Court cases and the more than 170 that have joined HRC's Business Coalition for the Equality Act. Time and again, leading American businesses have shown that protecting their employees and customers from discrimination isn't just the right thing to do - it's also good for business."

Integrating and including is a critical pillar of ManpowerGroup's Sustainability Plan and purpose - that meaningful and sustainable work has the power to change the world.

ManpowerGroup Solutions Total Workforce Index* Ranks Ireland, Norway and UK as Top Spots for Talent

MILWAUKEE, Feb. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) Solutions Total Workforce Index™ 2019 reveals Ireland, Norway and the UK as top labor markets across the globe for sourcing, hiring and retaining workforce skills. In an increasingly complex global market, access to skilled talent is a priority for organizations looking to build or grow their business. The Total Workforce Index™ is the only tool of its kind to use Big Data combined with expert insight to compare workforce potential across markets by evaluating the skills availability, cost efficiency and workforce productivity of both permanent and contingent labor sources.

The Index uses a proprietary formula that can be customized to respond specifically to an organization's most pressing workforce priorities. These can range from sector specific skills challenges and the impact of shifting regulations to flexible scheduling and changing wages by location across sectors from oil and gas to IT and manufacturing.

"The emergence of new skills and new talent pools, together with fresh ways to work and get work done, mean companies have more options than ever when identifying where to locate or expand their operations," said Becky Frankiewicz, President of ManpowerGroup North America. "Whether the priority is a specific tech skilled workforce or setting up a new call center, we can use the index to provide companies with data that helps them to make better and faster strategic decisions. With this right combination of data and insights, organizations can execute a precise talent strategy to meet their unique business needs."

View the full Total Workforce Index™ 2018 report at  https://www.manpowergroupsolutions.com/twi for the full rankings on markets most favorable to conduct business.

REGIONAL RANKINGS

  • APAC - Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore are the top markets for business development in the APAC region and globally. Hong Kong and Singapore rank highly for larger talent pools and support of flexible working conditions versus markets with new tax policies and labor laws.
  • AMERICAS - The United States and Canada claim the top two rankings in the Americas region due to their mature workforces, followed by Chile, Mexico and Puerto Rico. Across South and Central America, micro market shifts and significant legislative changes can increase hiring complexity. The lowest ranked countries across the TWI globally are also in the Americas: Brazil, Honduras, Bolivia and Venezuela. Only the U.S. and Canada rank in the global top 10 - at 4th and 6th respectively.
  • EMEA - The top five ranked countries in the region are the UK, Ireland, Estonia, United Arab Emirates and Israel. All of these countries bar Israel rank in the top 10 globally. Increasing access to education and investment in skills development have contributed to the workforce potential across the region.

About the Total Workforce Index™

The Total Workforce Index™ (TWI) uses a proprietary formula to measure the relative ease of sourcing, hiring and retaining a workforce in competing labor markets around the world. The TWI compiles more than 90 key factors which relate to the Availability, Cost Efficiency, Regulation and Productivity of the workforce of each country. Unlike any other Workforce Index, the Total Workforce Index™ considers the entire workforce and not a single segment of the workforce in each country. The inclusion of the complete workforce allows for segmentation to review and analyze the contingent and permanent workforce considerations, in addition to the sum of these two workforce segments.

Q1 2019 Hiring Intentions Point to Continued Global Labor Market Growth Led by U.S. and Asia

MILWAUKEE, Dec. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Positive Employment Outlooks are set to continue into 2019, with 43 of 44 countries planning to increase headcounts in Q1 according to the ManpowerGroup Employment Outlook Survey (NYSE: MAN).  Positive hiring intentions span the globe with strong Outlooks from Japan to Taiwan, the U.S., Slovenia and Greece. Some European countries show signs of softening hiring intentions amid trade tensions and Brexit uncertainty. Modest Outlooks are reported in Germany, the Netherlands and the UK. Only one country – Argentina – is reporting a negative Outlook.

Global hiring intentions have strengthened in 16 countries, remain constant in five and slowed in 23 year-over-year, according to the survey of more than 60,000 employers across 44 countries and territories.

View complete Q1 2019 survey results: www.manpowergroup.com/meos

"We're seeing continued demand for skilled talent across the globe, as companies stay focused on business growth, especially in tight labor markets like the U.S.," said Jonas Prising, ManpowerGroup Chairman & CEO. "We see positive hiring too across Europe despite some caution in Northern Europe where Outlooks are more modest.  This year headwinds including new governments, continued uncertainty around whether a Brexit deal might be reached and concerns relating to global trade appear to have led some employers to adopt a wait and see approach to hiring. We do know that technological disruption will continue at pace irrespective of political and economic uncertainty, so now is the time to equip people with the skills they need today, and those they will need to stay employable tomorrow."

Global Hiring Plans by Region

EMEA: Employers report positive Outlooks in all 26 countries surveyed in the EMEA region. Employers in Slovenia (+19%) and Greece (+18%) report the strongest Outlooks. Swiss employers continue to report the weakest hiring prospects in the region.

  • Accustomed to uncertainty, UK employers remain optimistic for Q1 2019 reporting stable hiring plans when compared to the previous quarter (+6%). Employers in the Construction sector continue to report the most optimism (+9%) leading to concerns over talent shortages as Brexit negotiations continue.
  • The Spanish labor market is set to soften in Q1 2019 as employers report an Outlook of +3%, a slight decline from the previous quarter. However, optimism is reported by employers in the Wholesale & Retail trade sector who expect the strongest hiring climate in 11 years (+10%).
  • Manufacturing employers are reporting some of the most optimistic headcount increases for Q1 2019 in Hungary, Romania, Slovakia and Poland, driven by growth in the automotive industry.

Americas: Headcounts are expected to grow in nine of the 10 countries surveyed. U.S. employers report the strongest hiring intentions in the region for the fifth consecutive quarter (+20%). The only negative Outlook in the survey is reported in Argentina (-2%).

  • U.S. hiring pace is expected to hit a 12-year high in the new year as unemployment hits a 50-year low and the labor market continues to tighten. At +20%, employers are reporting a 16-point improvement compared to Q1 2010.
  • Canada is seeing its strongest performing market since Q2 2008. More than half of the sectors show improvements with Transportation & Public Utilities and Manufacturing of Durables the best performers.
  • Brazil leads the way in Latin America, with the strongest hiring intentions in four years, +8%, improving two percentage points year-on-year. The Agriculture, Fishing and Mining sector report the strongest Outlook year-over-year.
  • Argentinian employers report the weakest hiring intentions since the survey began 12 years ago (-4%) as key industries such as Manufacturing and Transportation & Utilities contract.

Asia Pacific: Employers in all eight countries and territories expect to increase headcount in the upcoming quarter. Hiring Outlooks are strongest in Japan (+27%) and Taiwan (+21%), with all countries in the region reporting positive hiring intentions.

  • The Japanese economy continues to expand, and employers anticipate the strongest hiring pace in over 15 years (+27%). The Transport & Utilities sector leads this expansion with a bullish Outlook of +44%, improving +12 and +10 percentage points from Q4 2018 and Q1 2018 respectively.
  • Chinese employers remain confident, reporting an Outlook of +10% for Q1 2019, and the Manufacturing Outlook remains unchanged (+8%). Largely unaffected by the 2008 financial crisis, China's economy has diversified over the last decade, indicative of the country's efforts to expand its production and export-led economy to a consumer one.

"It continues to be essential that we recognize female leadership and call out the immensely important roles these women play in developing, driving and delivering solutions, work models and value for the industry.
