London, UK, 3 Nov 2021, The COVID-19 global pandemic and the lockdown policies enacted to mitigate it have had profound effects on the labour market. Understanding these effects requires us to obtain and analyse data in as close to real time as possible, especially as rules change rapidly and local lockdowns are enacted.
Staff shortages in the UK’s farming, haulage, and hospitality sectors have expanded to practically every sector of the UK economy, putting “serious strain” on medium-sized businesses, according to a new survey.
Over a quarter of the 500 companies polled confessed that a lack of workers is harming their capacity to operate at regular levels, according to a survey released on October 4 by the Brussels-based accountancy and advising firm BDO.
Companies who are considering lowering production and raising prices were listed in the research, as well as companies that aim to raise wages and introduce additional bonuses to attract new personnel.
The UK staffing crisis in social care is real and being exacerbated equally by three key issues, low pay, Brexit and Covid.
