According to recent figures, the number of vacancies in the UK is at a record high. The employers’ organisation the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) warned that staff shortages could last another two years.
This problem is particularly concerning in the care industry, with the number of job vacancies nearly doubling in the last six months – from 4,832 in January to 8,142 in August this year.
This problem could worsen once the government’s mandatory vaccination legislation comes into force on 11 November 2021, with one in four care home staff reported to disagree with mandatory vaccination. The government has predicted that 40,000 staff will refuse to have the vaccine and consequently lose their jobs, making it more important than ever to have effective recruitment and retention strategies in place.
