ABSTRACT
The number of companies experiencing staff recruitment problems has almost doubled in the past year in Great Britain. Twenty-eight per cent of companies have had difficulties with employee retention, up from 8.5 per cent in 2002. This is the highest percentage of employers reporting recruitment and retention problems since 1990. Of those experiencing recruitment problems, 86 per cent put these down to difficulties hiring managers with the right specialised skills, especially engineers, actuaries and salespeople. The average increase for general managers' pay rose by 5.2 per cent in the year to January 2003, but for HR managers this figure was 7.3 per cent. Average total earnings of managers in this country are £41,369.
