51% said that there were not enough people with the right skills and 16% said that the competitive industry was making it difficult to recruit potential employees.
The respondents were also asked about digitizing operating models.
More than half of them said they wanted to invest in automated and data-driven management. 53% of them are using cloud-based platforms to digitize operating models.
