Simplyhealth success stories

Unlocking the full potential of entire workforces, one health plan at a time

Challenges in recruitment and retention

Britain’s employment picture is a complex one, with significant labour shortages being felt in many sectors across the country. According to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), hospitality, admin and retail struggle the most with retention1, holding back much-needed growth in the economy. Among the issues being faced are:

Changes to the expectations from staff, such as being able to work flexibly.

Employees now expect a provision that prioritises their wellbeing and mental health.

A significant increase in the numbers of long term sick, due to long NHS waiting times.

The increasing costs of childcare and care for the elderly.

A smaller pool of foreign labour as a result of post-Brexit immigration rules.

Fewer workers with the right training and skillsets for particular roles.
