Survey picks up ‘persistent’ recruitment problem
20 June 2022
More than 80% of organisations are experiencing staff shortages in the warehouse, according to a survey by CILT(UK).
A SURVEY from across CILT’s membership has revealed that 86% of companies have experienced warehouse operative staff shortages in the past two years. Respondents also revealed that 60% of organisations have experienced a shortage of drivers in the past two years.
LogMark, CILT(UK)’s logistics and supply chain benchmarking club for corporate members, surveyed its members, and wider industry, to understand shortcomings that businesses face when recruiting and retaining staff in their organisations.
The survey revealed that staffing shortages are a persistent problem, with the highest impacted area being warehouse operatives. As expected, driver shortages continue to be a challenge.
However, the survey also indicated there are a number of ways to improve recruitment and retention. The survey found that 60% of participants provide funding for training, while 50% offer staff bonuses and 40% offer social events as incentives.
