With the beginning of a new financial year now upon us, it provides a good opportunity to reflect on the personal and professional successes of the past 12 months and plans for the next. Political factors such as the upcoming London and devolved elections and the EU ‘Brexit’ referendum seem to be having quite an impact on decision making for business leaders and there is some nervousness and a softening of the confidence we have seen previously.
However, sectors such as manufacturing, financial services and telecoms & technology are continuing to invest in new skills, with major infrastructure leading the way – this last industry being an area that many experts believe is key to continued global economic recovery. We have had a number of our own experts, both from the Alium team and the wider interim community contribute their thoughts on the current market, especially around subjects such as managing skills shortages during change (http://www.inspiredmail.co.uk/t/y-l-ddhkjdt-l-p/) and working with agility in larger organisations (http://www.inspiredmail.co.uk/t/y-l-ddhkjdt-l-x/) .
