This year’s guide is based on survey findings from almost 2,500 respondents and includes salary data split by profession and Irish region.
Key findings include:
- Irish employers have a positive business outlook, with 95% expecting business activity to increase or stay the same in the year ahead.
- Recruitment plans are still a priority, with 82% of employers saying they expect to hire staff in the next 12 months.
- Challenges finding the right candidates persist, as 97% of employers say they have experienced skills shortages within the past year.
- Skills shortages are threatening both projects and productivity.
- Salaries have risen to address skills gaps, but this is not enough to retain staff.
- Employers continue to underestimate the appeal of offering a positive work-life balance to prospective employees, and the value this can have as a tactic in competing for talent. Only 13% of employers think work‑life balance is important to attract staff, while 32% of professionals prioritise this when considering a new role.
