Closing the Talent Gap: How Recruitment Agencies Bridge the Skills Shortage for Companies

Ratio of Soft Skills to Hard Skills: What's Important

Many companies are experiencing a skills shortage. The employees’ skills do not match the skills needed to move forward.

The skills shortage is caused by a range of factors. For instance, current skills tend not to last long due to the rapid pace of technological advancement. Also, developmental gaps can result from changes in business strategy, insufficient training, or a lack of current learning and development resources.

Manpower’s 2023 Global Talent Shortage report showed that 77% of employer respondents had difficulty filling roles. Also, the Robert Walters whitepaper Bridging the Skills Gap in Finance Function found that 61% of CFOs were struggling to find qualified candidates for their open finance positions. As a result, the pressure to bridge the skills gap continues to increase.

Fortunately, you can close the talent gap by partnering with a recruitment agency that specializes in your industry. Gaining access to skilled employees helps your company remain competitive.

Discover how partnering with a recruitment agency can bridge the skills shortage for your company.
