In my previous blog, I discussed the overriding sense of optimism for the year ahead which we have seen amongst Irish organisations. Our Hays Ireland Salary & Recruiting Trends 2018 guide shows that nearly three-quarters of employers plan to hire staff in the next 12 months, and the vast majority expect business activity levels to increase or stay the same. Skills...

It doesn’t matter what you do for a living, the fourth industrial revolution, combined with a more globalised, competitive world, is changing the way we all work – both now and in the future. We must all be prepared for more change during our careers in the next five to ten years than we’ve ever managed through before. However, despite the more sensationalist headlines predicting the demise...

Opportunities in Civil and Structural engineering are on the rise as Ireland’s construction industry continues to go from strength to strength. However, the effects of the recession are still having an impact on consultancies struggling to find the talent they need to keep up with the increased workload. In 2007, a total of 16,014 students enrolled in construction related courses, at the...

Digital Marketing is on the rise in terms of both sophistication levels and global acceptance, and the scope for different businesses and brands to interact with their target market is boundless.

Health & Safety in the construction industry in Ireland has changed markedly over the last 15 years, the CIF Health & Safety Week (23rd-27th October) is just one strong indication of how attitudes have changed.

Improving healthcare outcomes through science and innovation is the common goal for Ireland’s life sciences start-ups, small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and big pharma corporates alike. If this is what connects them, then there is plenty to set them apart, not least when it comes to workplace culture and the attraction and retention of talent.  Attracting talent from big pharma...

Does it have a negative impact on your career? In short, no it doesn’t. While there are many negative perceptions, our recent research shows that improved work-life balance could have a positive impact on a professional’s productivity and make it easier to pursue their next career step. Results from our Hays Ireland Gender Diversity Report 2017 show 75% of women believe...

Differences in gender pay is a constant topic of discussion, particularly in the UK with the first instance of mandatory gender pay gap reporting coming into force in April 2018. Even though salary discrepancies have narrowed, recent research shows that there are still large pay gaps occurring in senior procurement roles. Considerable pay gaps within senior procurement roles Within...

You have a vacancy to fill and a shortlist of applicants who are mid-way through the interview process. Among the applicants, there is one candidate who particularly stands out and your instinct is telling you to choose them, yet hiring them could be risky. Whether it’s a gap in their CV or their lack of experience in your industry, something is stopping you from making the offer. It is...

By 2020, it’s predicted that businesses across the world will spend a combined $47bn on artificial intelligence (AI), and it appears that every aspect of our lives – from shopping and leisure to work and personal finance – will be transformed as machines leverage data to provide us with tailored, personalised services at scale.
