While some organizations are in hiring freezes, others are actively recruiting, illustrating the unique challenges each are facing given ongoing uncertainty and performance. We're also witnessing a growing interest in cost-cutting measures, from optimizing workforce costs to exploring outsourcing options like nearshoring and offshoring.
