HR Realities Research 2022

Talent shortages are becoming more of a challenge to business success as organisations continue to struggle to cope with the fallout from the pandemic, the impact of digital transformation, changing demographics, climate instability and sustainability, and strengthening economic headwinds. Fosway Group, Europe’s #1 HR industry analyst, in partnership with UNLEASH, today launches its HR Realities 2022 research which reveals the biggest HR challenges facing employers as well as insights on HR strategy, technology and innovation.

With 95% of respondents seeing the availability of talent as their most significant business challenge, the research shows that HR priorities have realigned to address skills shortages. This year, reskilling and upskilling, employee retention, and facilitating digital transformation have surged up HR’s strategic priority list compared to 2021.
