That is the opinion of Manpower Inc, which has conducted a Talent Shortage Survey of 35,000 employers across 36 countries and territories, which showed that skilled trades positions are the hardest to fill.
Jeffery Joerres, Manpower Inc chairman and chief executive of the organisation, said that as the global recovery gathers pace, cultivating future talent and alleviating the shortage of skilled workers is becoming vital to ensure economic growth.
"Countries should be developing policies which facilitate positive migration to fuel economic growth through providing skilled workers where they are needed, rather than creating barriers," he suggested.
It comes after Brendan Barber, general secretary of the Trades Union Congress (TUC), said the latest employment figures are good news for people seeking sales jobs and other roles and suggested that the UK economy is getting back on its feet.
The data, issued by the Office for National Statistics, showed that overall employment has risen by 184,000.
