The world is facing a growing talent shortage.
Employers are struggling to attract and retain candidates,
threatening productivity, efficiency and future growth.
ManpowerGroup knows candidates.
Through our ongoing Candidate Preferences Survey, we explore an array of candidate
behaviours and motivators aimed at helping organisations optimise their talent strategies.

challenges they face and the extent to which companies play a role in their hiring decisions.
