Attracting and retaining great people is now at the forefront of everyone's mind. Whether you own a business, run a department, or are rolling out your talent strategy, we know that the labour market is changing rapidly, and so are the needs and wants of your talented people.

Join us for our business knowledge network event where we explore four key areas that ensure you connect with great people, plan for future change, develop their talent and ensure your managers are developed to be the gate keepers of that talent.

Lack of skilled workers as a growth constraint

According to Grant Thornton’s International Business Report (December 2018), 40% of business leaders around the world cited a lack of skilled workers as a growth constraint. This significantly impacts their ability to expand capacity and produce more goods and services.

Change - the new normal?

‘If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail’, The words of Benjamin Franklin have never rang truer. We believe it is
fully possible to navigate the skills gap by taking a different approach to how you find the unique skills you seek in the
market, how you develop or build those skills and what leadership looks like in a business that makes talent and upskilling a priority.

We will also be hearing from Gareth Walls, A&L Goodbody, regarding disruptors to be expected in 2019 and Jane Lee, Grant Thornton, will provide a brief overview on reward schemes and succession planning for your business.
