    The state of the labour market and the rise of internal mobility

    Optamor Blog

    The labour market has shifted rapidly, creating an influx of candidates for a shrinking pool of jobs. There are now 60%* more applications for every role, meaning 100s of CVs to sift through for each vacancy. 

    Every sector is performing differently, with low and middle wage roles typically affected more than higher earning positions. This is creating a growing labour market mismatch, with low-middle earners most in need. 

    Looking inwards, budget tightening and increased staff engagement over the lockdown period mean internal mobility is more important than ever before. Businesses must maintain the same degree of transparency and communication, whilst helping staff to grow. 

    What does this mean for acquisition, retention and growth plans? Our panel of experts will evaluate the state of the labour market, discuss how to identify future stars in the business, create career pathways and improve loyalty and tenure. 

    The discussion is on September 16 @ 1.30PM (BST) via LinkedIn Live. Register your interest here.
