The latest insights relating to Resourcing and Talent Planning

The CIPD’s Resourcing and Talent Planning survey, in partnership with Omni, is now in its twenty-first year!


The survey examines resourcing and talent planning practices and the key challenges organisations are facing to provide people professionals and their organisations with benchmarking data on important areas such as recruitment costs, employee turnover and retention. 


It is a challenging time for organisations experiencing the continued global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and, on top of that, the UK’s transition period for leaving the EU.

In response to this ever-challenging backdrop, our findings suggest the importance for organisations to focus on the following key areas:


  • Strategic resourcing and talent management
  • Internal mobility and developing skills in-house

  • The use of technology in resourcing

  • Brand and candidate experience

  • Broadening and diversifying talent pools

  • Attraction and retention


We hope that you find the research useful when considering your own resourcing and talent policies and practice.
