The paper aims to analyse what made labour scarce and critical in the UK. Current social trends and demographic changes, acceleration of globalisation and off-shoring, decentralisation of high skilled workers, advancement in information technologies, and rapid improvements in quality standards – all these have greater contribution to tighten labour scarcity than ever before in the UK. The paper also concentrates the crucial role of HR in avoiding scarcity of skilled workforce through adopting a number of HR associated innovative strategies.
