It also shows that the dynamics around talent acquisition and retention remain a core component which organisations must continue to take more seriously and prioritise in their strategic goals.
“As we all can see, the work environment has fully evolved, the future of work we always talked about is here, the aftermath of COVID-19 made sure of that. Job candidates are increasingly choosing their companies as they continue to adapt by taking on new skills, even as businesses are adapting to new consumer expectations and behaviour by leveraging web tech to drive effective brand positioning.
