The race for talent: Attracting and retaining people in the new world of work

First event of the Employment & Reward team's and launch of our new global campaign focusing on how employers can attract and retain talent in a challenging market.

As we emerge from the global pandemic into the new working world, employers are facing acute challenges to recruit and retain their staff. The remarkable acceleration in flexible and hybrid working has only highlighted the new demands of the workforce and companies are racing to adapt to meet these needs. This race for talent has only widened the skills gap further and employers must act fast. Over the next 12 months, guidance from our employment, reward and immigration specialists will help employers navigate the pitfalls and prepare for the challenges around retaining and recruiting staff to stay ahead in this race for talent.

To launch our campaign, we are pleased to welcome guest speaker Andrew Garner, a leading authority on advising companies how to navigate through these turbulent times, to discuss what is driving people in their careers now and how employers can make their workplace attractive in the current climate. 

We will also have a panel discussion looking at real examples of the challenges you are facing currently and the important focuses in the coming months around employee recruitment and retention, including the use of shares, global mobility and the importance of Diversity & Inclusion. There will be time for questions so you can share your thoughts with our panel and other delegates.
