Talent shortage: time for new solutions

In its annual study (see infographic below),published in mid-October 2016, ManpowerGroup emphasizes the difficulty in recruiting faced by companies in France and around the world. The primary reason cited is the lack of available candidates.

By industry

Internationally, the notorious talent war has reached an unprecedented level : 40% of recruiters report having difficulty recruiting. This figure even rises to 86% in Japan !

In France, it is 23%, down from last year. It nevertheless reflects a worrying situation for many employers.
