Access to Talent – for London SMEs
Date: Tue 24 to Tue 24 Apr 2018
Time: 08:30 to 12:30
Location: Central Working, 25 Eccleston Place, London, SW1W 9NF
For an SME, your people are your business, so recruiting and retaining the right talent is imperative. But with often limited material and financial resources and one in four businesses highlighting hiring skilled staff as a barrier to growth (FSB 2014), we want to examine the different approaches London-based SMEs can take to attract and develop their people.
We will explore how to overcome specific challenges such as recruiting to company culture and values, engaging remote workers and ensuring the company culture is successfully cascaded throughout the organisation as well as maintained when scaling.
Join London & Partners’ Business Growth Programme, industry experts and growing start-ups and scale-ups to learn more about accessing and retaining the right talent for your business.
