Workforce Worries

Employers rarely have a period of significant stability in their workforce planning but is the range of current issues something of a perfect storm? Increasing digitalisation, new worker rights, Brexit and the new regime for skills-based immigration, the growth in apprenticeships, and competition for candidates from private sector house-builders are all happening at the same time.
