The Hays Global Skills Index 2016, a report published in collaboration with Oxford Economics, provides an analysis of professional employment markets across 33 global economies.

Hays Global Skills Index 2016

The report highlights that 2016 has been a year of momentous change across the world and as the global economy continues its slow recovery, the need to address skills shortages is more critical than ever; the skills gap is fast becoming a skills chasm.

Based on the trends we have seen from the past five years of the Hays Global Skills Index, and the views of our experts around the world, we propose three key recommendations for governments, policy makers and employers:

  • Address skilled migration to tackle the ever-growing skills gap
  • Implement smarter training programmes to ensure businesses are future-proofed
  • Tackle low productivity through better technology and employee engagement
