According to a report released, the number of people who are receiving outplacement support in the UK has increased. The figures are based on the first quarter of 2012.
The report also detailed how 62 per cent of people now accept a higher or same level salary, which is a 10 per cent raise on the same period 12 months ago, while the time to land a new position has dropped from 31 weeks to 30.
A spokesperson representing the study said, “The need for companies to take a strategic approach to managing their workforce has never been more critical in this turbulent global economic climate, and we can see that for many, career transition support is still very much in demand across all regions. Salaries are being matched or rising and weeks to land a new position is decreasing, which would suggest for the first quarter of 2012 there was a more positive outlook for candidates in a difficult market both in UK and across most of Europe.”
Included in the report were details of the number of people who were retiring, which seemed to show that the number was decreasing, dropping from 4 per cent in 2011 to 3 per cent in 2012. This dip has been linked with the growing trend of countries scrapping a retirement age altogether or, at the very least, raising it in what could lead to a recruitment revolution.
