The CBI reported that 50% of British businesses polled for the CBI/Accenture employment trends survey 2014 plan to take on extra workers in 2015, while 43% said they were planning pay rises in line with the Retail Prices Index. The CBI warned that a skills shortage could stop jobs being filled with businesses concerned that they would not be able to fill some jobs because of a lack of skilled candidates. The CBI report found that more permanent than temporary jobs would be created in 2015. The CBI called for the living wage to remain voluntary.
