Attracting top talent and what it means for your business

Do you need to attract more talent in your business? What are you doing to attract talent, retain talent and plan for future skills needs?

Join us at our first event of the series which will focus on attracting great talent into your business and retaining highly skilled people.

Across all sectors of industry, from large global firms to scale-ups or small businesses, business leaders consistently cite talent as the greatest challenge facing their companies.  Whether that means attracting experienced people; upskilling or reskilling your existing workforce; or apprentices and graduate recruitment. We will discuss solutions as to how to attract the best talent and retain the best talent in your business.

You may find it difficult to recruit people with the right skills to grow your business. Our panel will share their expertise and offer you practical solutions to help your business today. They will explain the pros and cons of what has worked, what hasn’t, whether it be school/graduate level through to experienced hires. They will show you the benefits and routes that employers have taken to attract the very best people with the right skills and retain this talent.

This will be an opportunity to join a lively morning of discussion and debate, whilst taking away ideas and tips to support your own talent development approach. The panel will consist of 3 speakers from small to medium and large sized businesses and a speaker each from academia and business support. Details of our exciting line-up coming soon.

Details of further LEP Talks will also be announced soon, so keep checking this page.
