A Theoretical & Practical Insight

This three-hour lecture delves into three main challenges faced by businesses today and in the near future – Attracting talent, Engaging Employees and Retaining staff.

This challenge has become more complex with the introduction of mandatory ESG requirements that demand specific provisions regarding the engagement and treatment of employees.

During this session participants will be able to explore organisational practices rooted in solid research that contribute towards making businesses attractive to prospective recruits, engaging their staff to promote a culture motivation and wellbeing and creating the necessary conditions that will make employees want to stay and belong to the organisation.
