PERSONNEL TODAY invites you to their event

Talent turmoil: hiring in a post-pandemic world

About this event

The pandemic has created a perfect storm for resourcing professionals. After 18 months of postponing decisions, candidates are on the move. As the number of vacancies rise and the supply of talent falls, businesses are in a battle to attract the best people.

This Personnel Today webinar, in association with RPOne – the boutique RPO solution from recruitment giant Morson Group – examines how, after many talent acquisition teams have been pared back, HR teams can once again begin to hire quickly and effectively.

In a candidates’ market, one where industries are beginning to understand the full impact of leaving the EU, how do employers ensure they can attract, engage and onboard the best people? What effect do new ways of working have on the recruitment market? How will people’s experience of the pandemic influence their expectations of a new role?

Register now for this 60-minute panel discussion as Rob Moss discusses this challenge with three industry experts. Experienced HR director Wendy Cartwright, shares her views alongside Morson Group's chief operating officer Adrian Adair and Sam Price, head of client solutions at RPOne.

This live webinar also examines how the pandemic has placed a spotlight on culture, values and flexibility, forcing businesses to innovate. When candidates have options, what are the strategies for winning the war for talent?

Attendees will learn:

  • When it’s right to reserve your resources and how best to outsource
  • How to ensure diversity isn’t pushed down the agenda
  • Practical examples of how employers are navigating these issues
  • Ways in which recruiting professionals are innovating as world of work is changing, and
  • When employers need to re-think and upskill.

This 60-minute online event includes an opportunity for audience members to pose questions to our panel.
