Executive Insights: 5 Defence Strategies to Tackle the UK Skills & Labour Shortage

Recorded: 12 July 2017

  • Overview
    • The UK is sailing into a workforce crisis due to an impending people, leadership and skills shortage caused by ageing and migration that will impact every organisation, in every industry.

      Earlier this year, we released our Mercer Workforce Monitor™ analysis to help organisations understand the impact on their workforce, and introduced the 5 lines of defence that organisations need to consider when realigning their people and workforce strategy for future success.

      In this webinar, our experts will deep dive into the 5 lines of defence and share what other organisations are already doing in response. They will also share with you a critical framework to help you define and prioritise activity and develop a stronger people strategy.
