Top Personal Assistants meet to power Cardiff’s businesses

November 19th, 2015

Top Personal Assistants meet to power Cardiff’s businesses

• 87% of bosses say they could not do their role as effectively without their personal assistant.
• Over two-thirds (69%) of PAs would choose to be a PA if they started their career again.
• Organisations in South Wales are recognising the integral role of a PA and increasing their hiring.

Over nine in ten (93%) personal assistants say their bosses could not do their role without them and their bosses agree, according to the results of a survey of over 2,800 employers and employees nationwide, launched in Cardiff on 20 October by Hays PA & Secretarial.

Findings from the report, What makes a successful PA?, were discussed with personal assistants in the Welsh capital, led by Steve Heard, National Director at Hays PA & Secretarial. The meeting also saw the launch of a dedicated Hays PA & Secretarial business in Cardiff due to the demand for personal assistants and secretaries.

The event, held at Village Urban Resorts, was an opportunity to discuss findings from the report and how PAs are often now seen by their bosses as equal to management and some as equal to a director level. When asked to rate the top three skills of a good PA, employers selected communication, organisation and the ability to prioritise deadlines, while PAs believe that for the next generation to be successful in their role, they need to understand the goals of an organisation, have excellent people skills and work hard.

Steve Heard, Director at Hays PA & Secretarial, speaking at the launch of the report in Cardiff, said:
“We have seen organisations across Cardiff, both large corporates and SMEs, recognising the vital role a PA plays in business and are looking to harness their expertise. Today we are proud to mark the opening of Hays PA & Secretarial in our Cardiff office to help personal assistants of South Wales take their next career step. As today’s PAs view their profession as highly rewarding and are offered competitive salaries for their experience, we look to establish the role of a PA as an aspirational career path for young people.”

The results of our research demonstrate that a skilled PA or EA is vital for bosses to successfully fulfil their own role. Not only are PAs now an aide and trusted advisor to their boss, but they are managers themselves. PAs in 2015 are a new breed of busy multi-skilled professionals supporting the goals of their boss and organisation and highly sought after by organisations across South Wales.”

Economic confidence and skill shortages to create pay pressure for employers in 2016

November 19th, 2015

Economic confidence and skill shortages to create pay pressure for employers in 2016

• Salaries increased by 2.3% in 2015, with over two thirds of employers expecting to increase pay again next year
• 59% of employees expect to move jobs within the year and over half will enter 2016 dissatisfied with pay
• War for talent continues with 74% of employers looking to hire additional staff next year
• Over three quarters cite a lack of suitable candidates as one of their biggest challenges when recruiting

According to the Hays UK Salary & Recruiting Trends 2016 report, an annual survey of over 20,000 employers and employees in the UK, increased business confidence, a more fluid jobs market and the UK’s skill shortages will create unprecedented pressure on employers to increase salaries next year.

Salary pressure increases in 2015
The analysis of salary data from Hays job listings, job offers and candidate registrations showed salaries in 2015 grew on average 2.3% nationally, up from 1.8% in 2014, with employees in construction and IT seeing the biggest jumps, at 3.6% and 2.8% respectively.

The average wage growth in these sectors masks substantial pay rises of over 10% for some qualified, professional and skilled workers. In construction double digit salary growth was enjoyed by those working in a number of specific roles, including contract and project managers and quantity surveyors. Similar increases were enjoyed by some in the IT sector too, including those working in project and change management and development roles in some areas of the UK.

Across the UK, some of the biggest salary increases outside of London and the South East were in the South West, where salaries increased 2.7%.

These increases surpassed employers’ expectations, with 68% of employers awarding salary increases compared to the 60% who predicted they would do so 12 months ago.

Pay pressure to gain momentum in 2016
It appears pressure over pay is only set to increase next year. Over three fifths (66%) of employers expect to increase salaries in 2016 and nearly one in five (17%) expect to increase salaries above 2.5%, according to the annual survey.

Engineering and financial services employers are likely to feel the biggest pressure to increase salaries next year, with 76% and 74% respectively expecting to increase salaries. While construction and IT employees will continue to experience some of the biggest increases in salary with a third (28%) of their employers set to increase pay above 2.5%.

Outside of London and the South East, employers in the East of England and the East Midlands appear most bullish about increasing salaries in 2016.

Economic confidence to create a more fluid jobs market
The findings show that increased confidence in the economy has led to 68% of employers expecting business activity to increase over the next 12 months and 74% looking to hire additional staff.

There are consequences for staff retention too, however, with three fifths (59%) of employees planning to change jobs during the coming year. Employers in social housing and banking are due to experience the biggest exodus of staff in the next twelve months, with 74% and 65% respectively saying they are looking to leave.

With over half the UK workforce (55%) saying they are dissatisfied with their current salary and a third (31%) moving jobs for this reason, it would appear that employers will need to dig deeper into their pockets to retain their best talent and take on additional work next year.

Skills shortage pushing up pay
A more fluid jobs market and dissatisfaction with pay will be compounded by the UK’s skills shortage, putting further pressure on employers to pay even more for the talent they need.

Four fifths (79%) of employers say one of the biggest challenges they face when recruiting is a shortage of suitable applicants and a third (31%) say they don’t have the talent to achieve their business objectives, both similar numbers to last year.

Nigel Heap, Managing Director of Hays UK & Ireland, said:
“Increasing confidence in the UK economy is seeing businesses predict a busy 2016. The impact on the employment market is a further shift in power to candidates as they look for better pay and opportunities too. This, combined with the UK’s skills shortage, is likely to create a pay ‘pressure cooker’ in 2016 which employers need to be prepared for.”

“The UK’s skills shortage is a real concern and will only put further pressure on employers next year. We need to ensure that the UK is open for business to overseas talent and that there is further investment from businesses in training and skills development. It will be those employers who can offer competitive remuneration packages, clear career development paths and relevant training programmes that will be best placed to attract the top talent required to succeed next year. Those that don’t, risk stifling their growth plans.”

Hays staff success raises vital funds for brain tumour research

Hays staff success raises vital funds for brain tumour research

On Wednesday 14 January, staff from Hays, the leading recruiting expert, went to the home of Ipswich Town Football Club, Portman Road, where they were playing their FA Cup match against Southampton, to raise awareness among supporters and raise vital research funds as part of the company’s two year partnership with The Brain Tumour Charity, the UK’s leading charity dedicated to fighting this devastating disease.

Amy Stanton and members of the Hays Bury St Edmunds team went to the ground before the kick-off to raise awareness and held a collection as the supporters attended the game, raising £310 for The Brain Tumour Charity. Amy is running the London Marathon for The Brain Tumour Charity on 26 April, and this amount raised will contribute to her fundraising target of £2,500.

Amy Stanton, Consultant at Hays in Bury St Edmunds, said: “I was so proud to organise this collection and raise awareness for the charity. We are very grateful for the support of Ipswich Town Football Club, the Ipswich and Southampton supporters for their generous donations and Ipswich Borough Council for allowing us to hold the collection. The Brain Tumour Charity is such an important cause, the donations from the supporters can help to save lives.”

Hays has raised over £130,000 so far and continues to support the charity in the second year of the partnership to raise money to fund a new Centre of Excellence, which will be dedicated to carrying out world-class research.

Over 9,000 people are diagnosed with a brain tumour each year and brain tumours are the largest cancer killer of children and adults under 40. The Brain Tumour Charity’s mission is to fund and promote research to improve understanding, diagnosis and treatment of brain tumours and ultimately find a cure. The Brain Tumour Charity is the largest dedicated funder of research into brain tumours in the UK and leads the way in ensuring all research funded is selected through stringent, independent peer review. The Charity offers a comprehensive service to enable everyone with a brain tumour, their families and carers to receive the best support and information and achieve the highest quality of life possible as well as raising awareness of brain tumours to improve life chances.

Louise Taylor, The Charity’s Director of Fundraising, said: “We are grateful for all the efforts made by all of the Hays employees and thank them for organising the collection. Only 2% of cancer research funding goes on brain tumours in the UK. Our goal is to significantly increase research investment to improve treatments and ultimately save lives. We rely 100% on voluntary donations to fund our work and it’s only through the efforts of companies like Hays and people like Amy and the team in Ipswich that we will be able to do this and bring hope to the thousands of people who are diagnosed with a brain tumour every year.”
