Your weekly news round-up
Some interesting new research in this week’s newsletter which reveals that more than three in four employers are now turning to the temporary market to aid their digital transformation strategies.
At a time when many are struggling to hire the right calibre of candidate to help them close the digital skills gap within their organisation, many businesses leaders are needing to turn to contract or temporary professionals to fill the need.
With more than 1.4 million temporary workers currently active in the UK, companies are increasingly tapping into a pool of highly skilled workers who operate on an interim or project basis to help navigate digital disruption.
Matt Weston, Managing Director of Robert Half UK which conducted the research, said: “Digitalisation is transforming the workplace at a rapid pace. New technology such as automation and artificial intelligence is being introduced to the workplace and has already started to shape the job roles of the future. Organisations lacking digital expertise and understanding will soon be left behind.”
The issues and challenges thrown up by this research will be examined in detail at our upcoming 2020 Digital Workplace Conference next March. Look forward to seeing you there.
