Talent Management: Recruitment, Engagement and Retention
As many staff have started to return to their workplaces, employers and individuals alike have found themselves having to adapt to a new working landscape after a very unusual few years.
Not only do employers need to grapple with balancing employee expectations with the needs of the organisation on returning to the workplace, they also have the continuing challenge of attracting, engaging and retaining the best talent, (particularly at a time when many employers are finding this more difficult than before).
Many workers have been re-evaluating what they want from their careers, whether linked to their working hours or location, or what they expect from their employer in terms of personal development, pay/benefits or the working culture. The huge diversity of expectation within a workforce can make it harder to recruit the right people, and to minimise staff turnover.
That’s why, it is even more important now that employers have in place the right strategies to attract, engage and retain talent.
- Discussed the current challenges in recruiting the best talent, and what employers need to consider to improve their employee value proposition.
- Considered the ways in which to engage the existing workforce, including adapting to multiple flexible working approaches, and adopting effective Equality Diversity and Inclusion strategies, demonstrating sustainability credentials, and how the work ‘culture’ may have an impact.
- Discussed what it may take to retain the best talent and avoid the risk of staff leaving and/or joining competitors.
- Shared their insights from other clients and sectors in the areas above.
