Up to 50% increase in salaries for those looking for a new job!

In a recent BBC article they report that:  "A professional recruitment firm says it is placing graduate lawyers at top firms on starting salaries as high as £150,000 amid a shortage of workers. Alan Bannatyne, chief financial officer at Robert Walters, told the BBC people in many UK industries were quitting for better paid jobs amid soaring demand. "15% is the minimum pay rise we're seeing, but some are increasing their salaries by up to 50%," he said. "Unless something significant happens, 2022 should be even better for staff."" I'd love to hear what your organisation is experiencing at the moment? How are you retaining staff and meeting growing salary demands?
