South Africa’s acute critical skills crisis is brought into sharp focus in Xpatweb’s Critical Skills Survey 2020/21 which highlights the most in demand scarce skills the country is now facing and how businesses are seeking to import personnel from across the globe amidst ever growing international competition between countries.

The Critical Skills Survey is conducted annually across a wide range of multi-national and corporate companies in South Africa to determine and assess the pressure points that Human Resource- and Global Mobility Practitioners face in sourcing critically skilled individuals.
