Report: CIPD Market Labour Outlook Autumn 2021

The quarterly CIPD Labour Market Outlook report, which surveyed 1,000 employers, provides an early indication of future changes to the labour market around recruitment, redundancy and pay intentions.

Report: CIPD Market Labour Outlook Autumn 2021 1

According to this report, the rapid expansion in hiring activity has coincided with a fall in labour supply over the past three months for low-skilled vacancies. As a result, the incidence of recruitment difficulties has increased since the previous report.

Key findings:

  • Almost half (46%) of employers that currently have vacancies report recruitment difficulties, which compares with 39% for the third quarter of 2021
  • the proportion of employers with hard-to-fill vacancies jumped from 39% to 47% this quarter. Meanwhile, the median number of applicants for low-skilled vacancies has dropped from 20 to 16
  • employers are responding to recruitment challenges through positive action such as raising wages (47%), upskilling staff (44%), hiring more apprentices (27%) and improving job quality (20%).

Figures suggest that median basic pay settlement expectations are unchanged at 2% compared with three months ago. However, median basic pay expectations have risen to 2.5% from 2.2% during the same period in the private sector.
