Business Breakfast Briefing with SGFE
How to Attract and Retain Talent
17th March 2020
One of the biggest problems facing businesses at the moment is attracting and retaining the skilled staff they need to drive growth and outrun the competition. The new generation of employees expects much more than good pay and conditions. Culture is the defining factor in attracting and keeping the right people today. Building the right culture is not just a matter of good leadership and management. You need to have a strategy and process.
Jason Walkingshaw will talk about Attracting and Retaining Talent and explains why in today’s job market, attracting and retaining talent is often top of the agenda for business leaders. What is your Employee Value Proposition (EVP)? Do you have one? Very rarely is a salary the biggest driver in a candidates/employees’ decision making process. As Head of Employee Engagement at the UK’s latest unicorn – OVO Energy, Jason Walkingshaw was in charge of the people plan that helped the company grow from 40 to 1300 people and be ranked 20th Best Place to work in the Sunday Times in 2017.
Julian Oldfield will show you convincing evidence that now is the time to implement a growth strategy. The macro-economic picture indicates a period of underlying strong economic growth between 2021 and 2031. But your business needs to have the right mix of skills and capabilities.
Your business needs to be structured for growth and Julian will reveal the secrets of achieving the most efficient and profitable team size and competition at your current stage of development. He will also explain how and why businesses grow in “jumps” rather than at a steady incremental rate and why you will get stuck at certain points in your business journey and how you get out of these “black holes” into the next growth phase.
Join us for breakfast at 8.30am followed at 9.00am by this enlightening 2 hour seminar led by renowned business strategist and top business coach Nic Rixon. You will be re-energised and should be be back at your desk by lunchtime.
