Is recruitment a challenge for your business? Do you struggle to attract and retain the right talent?
You are not alone … currently 61% of organisations in the UK are having difficulty recruiting to senior, strategic and skilled roles and by 2030 a global talent crisis is predicted to hit with a shortage of 85.2 million skilled workers.
Make sure you are in the best position for combatting these obstacles by attending this free, half day conference, designed to put you in control of your business’ future recruitment and retention.
The morning will combine expert opinion and experience, with audience discussion and live interactive polling. Critical topics will be covered, including:
- The importance of your employer brand and how to ensure it’s competitive and compelling in the marketplace, featuring insight from the UK’s largest hiring platform Totaljobs;
- The power of research and benefits of market mapping;
- New and innovative approaches to recruiting talent;
- How to keep your best, most wanted employees from job hunting;
- Building a strong succession plan and finding your hidden leaders.
You’ll also hear from our keynote speaker, former RAF flight lieutenant and England rugby’s record try scorer, Rory Underwood MBE, who will provide a thought provoking session on high performance teams. Over the past two decades, Rory has been a consultant to businesses and he will be drawing on his experience of teamwork under pressure to discuss how you can improve your team’s performance.
Book your place today for an opportunity to share your recruitment challenges and experiences and take away new strategies and solutions that can be applied as soon as you return to the office.
