In today's world of work, companies must plan for unpredictability and need to be built for change. With technological disruption and geopolitical uncertainty continuing at pace, we can be certain that further change lies ahead. Companies need to adapt, so they can keep businesses running smoothly with one hand, while preparing for a different and uncertain future with the other.

Industry Insiders delves into the latest trends that are forcing employers to think differently about their business and workforce strategies. By combining the latest market intelligence with Experis insights and expertise, we explore the new opportunities that business leaders can harness in order to secure the future success of their organisation, and the challenges that must be addressed along the way.

Our first Industry Insiders report takes a closer look at the rise of voice technology in the UK, and what this means for organisations looking to bring in the right talent to help them develop their capabilities in this space.

Highlights from the report reveal that:

  • The voice technology talent pool is still in its early stages of development, mostly made up of individuals who have just recently completed their education. As a result, businesses would be wise to include talent with transferable skills in their search for talent
  • In line with the wider IT market, there is a long way to go to improve the gender diversity amongst voice technology experts, with the field currently made up of 84% males and just 16% females
  • Individuals with experience in the majority of coding languages can be trained in the additional human factors elements required, as they already have the core skills needed.
