    Flexible work is not an optional perk, it’s something employees expect. How can you meet both business needs and employee preferences?

    Work-life balance is not a ‘nice to have’, but a ‘need to have’. Workers also have concerns about inclusivity and discrimination. How can companies create a culture that works for all?

    AI icon

    An Expectation Gap has emerged in the workplace, with significant implications if you are looking to hire or retain talent.

    Workers have a growing list of demands, stretching far beyond competitive salaries and flexibility. Their employers are facing multiple pressures in a rapidly evolving business environment.

    How can both sides meet in the middle?

    Welcome to our Talent Trends 2024 study, presented by PageGroup’s talent intelligence and insights experts, PageInsights.

    Talent Trends is our annual global survey of skilled professionals. We aim to provide data-driven analysis and actionable insights into the job market, ultimately helping our customers shape their people strategies.

    Whilst our 2023 survey uncovered a significant shift in the world of work, which we called The Invisible Revolution, the situation has evolved again for 2024.

    On the one hand, workers have a growing list of expectations stretching far beyond competitive salaries and flexibility. On the other, employers are facing significant pressures in a rapidly evolving business environment, making it harder for both sides to meet in the middle.

    Finding people strategies that work for all is becoming more of a challenge - something we call 'The Expectation Gap’.

    You can explore what this means for your business in the content available on this page, where we outline the global story, drill down into the local picture in your market, and allow you to view our data your way with our interactive tool.
