The Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD) has published its latest quarterly labour market outlook (LMO) report which looks at indicators that highlight employers’ recruitment, redundancy and pay intentions. The information contained in the report was gathered from 931 employers.
Comparing data from private, public and voluntary sectors, this latest report indicates that there has been a small increase in employment prospects for young people. Employers are recognising the need to develop young talent to address future labour shortages and to help to fill hard-to-fill vacancies. The report also shows that employers are investing more in upskilling existing staff, hiring apprentices and recruiting graduates.
Indications from the report suggest that the labour market will continue to gain in strength during the remainder of 2015.
What is your organisation doing to increase employment prospects for young people? We’d like to hear from you – contact us at ThinkFuture@nhsemployers.org
