Highest talent shortage reported in 2016

Employers across the globe are facing the most acute talent shortage since the recession, according to a Talent Shortage Survey.
 
Of the employers surveyed, 40% are experiencing difficulties filling roles: the hardest jobs to fill are Skilled Trade Workers, Sales Representatives, Engineers, Technicians and Drivers.
 
Across the EMEA, Asia Pacific, and the Americas, IT Staff re-enters the top 10 ranking for the first time, and is the 10th hardest job to fill in 2016.
 
According to the survey, as skills needs change rapidly, employers are looking inside their organizations for solutions, with more than half choosing to develop and train their own people.
