Recent Western Cape Business News

Manpower South Africa released the results of its 5th talent shortage survey, revealing 14% of employers in South Africa are experiencing difficulty filling mission-critical positions within their organisations. ManpowerGroup’s 6th annual Talent Shortage Survey reveals one in three employers worldwide are struggling to fill key vacancies.

Currently in South Africa, the jobs employers have most difficulty filling are Drivers, Machinists/ Machine Operators and Accounting & finance staff whereas during 2010, Skilled Trades was the most difficult position to fill, while in 2011 the pressure has been reduced and it now takes up 5th position with Administrative assistants/office staff and chefs taking up the 9th and 10th positions respectively.

Peter Winn, Manpower South Africa Managing Director said: “While not all employers are feeling the strain associated with the global talent shortage, external forces will mostly likely result in them soon feeling the pressure. Businesses need to adopt a long-term approach to ensure they have the talent they need to achieve their business objectives. While talent cannot be “manufactured” in the short term, a robust workforce strategy will ensure a company’s business strategy is supported by having the talented people they need to execute it.”
