Workforce Rebalancing Whitepaper Jan 2023

For the first time ever, the talent acquisition and outsourcing market are facing a scenario that doesn’t reflect broader economic trends. History has shown that a sudden contraction of the recruitment market is a precursor to economic uncertainty, recession or a financial crash. In the final quarter of 2022, the UK economy – and indeed many global markets – were facing high inflation rates and economic instability.

In comparison, demand for talent remained above pre-Covid levels while skills shortages were still being widely reported. In this climate, we’re all facing a rebalancing of the workforce where talent commands more control of when, where and how they work.
