Why preparing a talent pipeline is key for the future of Gloucestershire businesses

According to recent population projections by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), Gloucestershire is predicted to witness a 7.1% increase in its population by the year 2041, slightly surpassing the national average. While this growth may appear promising for businesses and local development, the report highlights a significant rise in the population aged 65 and above. By 2041, it is projected that the proportion of individuals in Gloucestershire who fall into this age group will sharply rise from 20.8% to 28.9%.

For businesses, building a solid talent pipeline is the top of recruitment and managers' priorities to invest in the present and future of an organization.
