The pandemic changed recruitment practices across industries; many of these changes are here to stay. To reach, attract and retain best talent available, employers need to change the way they approach talent acquisition and now requires a cohesive Employee Value Proposition and Recruitment Plan to be in place.

We are joined by three industry experts to help us explore key issues and who will share their thoughts and best practices applicable to all sized businesses in the flexible workspace sector including on:

  • Candidate sourcing
  • Interview process
  • Employee Retention
  • Team Culture
  • On-boarding, training and development
  • Employee Value Proposition

This event is of extra value for any members that are part of the hiring and on boarding process for their business.
