More than half of employers still believe there is a talent shortage and that it is having a negative impact on their organisation, according to the Randstad 2009 Employment Trends Report.

The proportion of employers affected by the shortage is lower than last year (59% versus 67%), the report says, but nearly half (46%) complain it is increasing workload stress among staff (46%).

Some 22 per cent say company performance is suffering and 14 per cent are reporting higher turnover.

These are problems that recruiters can focus on when selling the benefits of their service to potential clients, the report indicates.

Not surprisingly, respondents to the survey (2,682 across Australia, New Zealand and Singapore) say their biggest human capital challenges for the next 12 months will be managing internal change (20%), people and productivity (19%) and human capital costs (15% – up from 4% last year), rather than attraction and retention.
