The coronavirus pandemic has, for many workers, put professional development on hold. Most professionals have hunkered down through the storm of illness, impact to wellbeing, furlough and layoffs as a result of the devastating effects of the virus on the professional industries. In many cases, the past year has simply been about maintaining productivity as much as possible.
This can be seen in hiring trends; recent ONS data suggested that, whilst many thousands of workers would have changed roles or even career paths over the past few months, the pandemic led to a period of inactivity, as people stayed put as the pandemic progressed. The market saw a marked improvement when lockdown ended, but hiring levels still aren’t rebounding to the kind of activity commonly seen before COVID-19.
