Skills Shortages and the Cost of Vacancy (COV)
The reality of skills shortages is a hotly debated and politicised topic in New Zealand.
The 2022 NZ Staff Turnover and Employment Survey canvassed organisations on the impacts of current skills shortages.
In 2022, 72% of businesses reported they had positions that they were unable to fill. This was an increase from 64% in 2021.
Now in its 14th year, Lawson Williams has once again surveyed New Zealand businesses across a range of sectors to provide Staff Turnover data as New Zealand moves through the Covid – 19 pandemic.
Can you remember a time when you were listening to someone speak and somehow, they engaged you? To this day you can remember most of what they said or at least the message they were trying to convey?

The New Zealand National Staff Turnover Survey is now in its 13th year. The survey provides organisations a benchmark of the success of their recruitment, onboarding, retention and development activities.
The government is making significant changes to immigration to control the quality of new migrants entering New Zealand to work and to ensure that more Kiwis are employed in preference to migrants.
