Some 34 per cent of Australian businesses have reported a shortage of skilled labour in a Manpower Group survey. This compares with 38 per cent in 2016 and 54 per cent in 2011. Richard Fischer of Manpower notes that Australian employers have been actively investing in staff training and upskilling in the wake of the global financial crisis. The survey also shows that companies are looking at options such as flexible working arrangements and greater use of temporary workers and freelancers.
