Webinar: Cost-Effective Employee Acquisition and Retention Strategies
This event has now ended
In the last quarter, the Office for National Statistics calculated a record low of 0.9 unemployed people per vacancy. Meanwhile, the British Chambers of Commerce reported three out of four companies are struggling to recruit. With hiring and retaining talent such a key factor to the success of a small business – and the squeeze on living costs making it impossible for small businesses to compete with large corporate salaries – identifying better ways to attract and retain high-calibre employees is now more crucial than ever.
So, what are the alternatives for SMEs under pressure to attract and retain talent?
In this Alumni Network webinar, our guest speakers explored cost-effective acquisition methods and explained how diversifying the recruitment pipeline helps increase access to talent. We also offered insights into improving staff retention by creating the conditions in which employees feel happy, included, and have opportunity for growth and development.
Listen below to hear practical pointers on:
- How SMEs can use their size and agility to give them a competitive edge.
- Alternative methods to engage high-calibre candidates.
- How SMEs can position themselves to appeal to the new generation of workers.
- Employee engagement strategies to boost retention and satisfaction.
