Did you know that hiring among those over 45 was during the first six months of 2022, a 11,4% higher than the same period in 2021?

Despite concerns about the recession... the truth is that the intention of employers in Spain to hire talent remains solid until the end of 2022: the abandonment rates are maintained and the workers change jobs at almost record levels, finding ourselves before an unprecedented phenomenon, known in networks as lto "great resignation".

Lydia Cuervo Professional Career PlanningThe “great resignation”, a global phenomenon to which employers are reacting by expanding the strategies and tactics of search and retention of senior talent, in order to be able to meet the needs of the new market after the pandemic.
