- Faced with an acute skills shortage, European businesses need to look beyond traditional talent hubs
LONDON, April 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- According to Forrester(Nasdaq: FORR), three cities in the Nordics: Helsinki, Stockholm, and Copenhagen are top European hotspots for businesses to recruit highly skilled talent. The top 10 cities also include Berlin, Hamburg, Oslo, Munich, Vienna, Zurich, and Amsterdam. London, often known as Europe's tech hub, was ranked 19th — largely due to stringent immigration rules post-Brexit.
In a new report, Navigating The Leading Skill Clusters Across Europe, Forrester ranks 50 cities to help tech and business leaders establish where to source the skills needed for the future. The focus on digital transformation efforts, an aging population, increasing automation, and continued pandemic-related disruptions have created a skills gap in Europe. To drive sustainable growth and prepare for the future of work, European businesses need skills including digital and technology prowess, critical thinking, and resilience.
Key findings include:
"The focus on green and digital revolution coupled with the socio-economic changes have created a noticeable skills gap in Europe, which can be debilitating for business growth," said Dan Bieler, principal analyst at Forrester. "To prepare for the future of work, European businesses need to hire talent adept at both technical and soft skills. The Nordics region is teeming with precisely this kind of talent. Recruiting talent from emerging hubs like the Nordics will allow European businesses to accelerate digital transformation efforts and drive long-term business growth."
