With each passing day, labor markets around the world are changing more and more. Depending on region, market and industry, these shifts can impact companies in a variety of different ways. This survey, conducted between February and March 2022, sought to understand how inflation, labor market challenges, COVID-19 policies and flexible working were impacting companies.
At the time of this survey, 41% of companies ranked the labor shortage as a significant priority for HR. Another challenge faced at this time was encouraging employees to return to the workplace; more than half of companies indicated they were implementing flexible schedules and/or working hours to help. More than two-thirds of companies around the world are tracking which employees are vaccinated, primarily by requesting the employee to provide proof of vaccination.
