London. Staff shortages in the UK are forcing companies to increase starting salaries.
According to a recent survey, they have grown the most in almost a quarter of a century.
The Confederation of British Employees and Employment (REC) announced this week that companies are having increasing difficulty finding enough employees.
According to REC President Neil Carberry, the war for newcomers between companies is huge and affects almost every industry, from logistics to food processing to management positions.
This is also reflected in the size of the starting salary. Their growth rate for temporary and permanent employees has recently reached its highest level since they began recording relevant data 24 years ago.
“We see staff shortages interfering in our daily lives, even if there are fewer products at gasoline gas stations or stores,” Carbury said. The REC called on the government to relax post-Brexit immigration rules so as not to create barriers to international trade and improve training conditions.
Robert Walters, chairman of the Robert Walters team, confirmed the problems of the legal and IT industry, the BBC. According to him, some law firms currently pay “newly asked” 150,000 (€ 176,699) or more for newly graduated lawyers.
