Businesses in all sectors are starting to recruit people with a different mindset from those they have hired previously. Workplaces are digital, customer and client expectations are heightened by personalised technology and instant communication, and many of the traditional HR processes now place a higher emphasis on the individual to take ownership of their personal and professional development..

"Employment for April to June was down by 63,000 compared to the previous three months and unemployment rose by 25,000 in the quarter. This is the second consecutive month in which employment has fallen and unemployment has risen. Although these developments are concerning there are signs that suggest that they may be more of blip than a trend. Looking at the changes in just the last month employment rose by 53,000 and unemployment fell very slightly by less than 1,000. In addition, as this month’s Bank of England Inflation Report notes, survey indicators of employment intentions remain strong. Hence perhaps the most likely outturn for the next few months is the return of an improving labour market albeit with employment rising and unemployment falling more slowly than was seen in the two to three years to early 2015."
