Global BPO’s shared services can help your business beat the shortage

We’ve all had enough of shortages lately. The problem started with supermarket shelves, more recently affected CO2 and fuel and now there is speculation that turkeys and toys will be harder to find this Christmas; it’s not just commodities which are in short supply, one of the biggest shortages is skilled people.

Labour shortages

As the economy recovers from the pandemic and other global factors, it’s estimated that there are currently over 1 million job vacancies in the UK.  The scramble by employers for talent is not confined to obvious sectors such as hospitality and haulage, the legal profession is also experiencing a growing imbalance in the supply and demand of lawyers which is leading to greater competition between firms for all sorts of specialists. Unsurprisingly, this is also resulting in an increase in salaries.

Litigation and investment boom

Many litigation practices have been buoyant recently and are expecting a lot of work to materialise because of the pandemic. The resultant disclosure exercises can be particularly labour intensive and surges in demand can be hard to predict.

Similarly, investment activity is surging, leading to an increased demand for lawyers and paralegals to assist with due diligence review projects.

Global BPO offers a highly flexible solution to its clients. It can quickly supply a team of specialists to augment existing personnel, enabling firms to scale up at short notice – for example, to respond to a tight timetable imposed by a Court or a deal deadline.
