Inspiring Talent: Developing the Workforce for the 2020’s

@ Aberdeen Standard Investments 40 Princes Street Edinburgh Midlothian EH2 2BY

30th January, 2019 16:00-18:00 Event
Think you know what your business needs to do to attract the talent of the future?
 
With businesses reporting ever increasing difficulties in finding employees with the right talent and skills, it’s never been more important to ensure your business is able to attract the best possible talent in a competitive marketplace. Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce’s Inspiring Talent group is therefore pleased to present an event designed to help you better understand the expectations of your future workforce.
 
At this event, you will hear directly from young people who are at the very beginning of their career journey about what they are looking for from an employer of choice.  Whether it’s good pay, good holidays, great training, flexible working practises, an opportunity to progress or a creative environment to help ideas flow, you will have the chance to hear directly about what matters to them. The event will be chaired by Sandy Begbie CBE, Chair of the Regional Developing Young Workforce group for Edinburgh, Midlothian and East Lothian who will lead the insightful and informative discussion with our speakers.
 
Aimed at senior people in your organisation in charge of attracting future talent, shaping recruitment practises and engaging employees, this event will also allow you to network with fellow businesses and invited young people from across Edinburgh who are pursuing different educational pathways.
 
Please join us on Wednesday January 30th 2019 between 4pm-6pm at Aberdeen Standard Investments, 40 Princes Street, Edinburgh, EH2 2BY.
