PEOPLE AND SKILLS NETWORK (NORTH WEST)

Over the last year, businesses have gone from a COVID-19 lockdown to a labour, skills and supply shortage crisis that is hampering firms’ recovery across all sectors. Job vacancies have reached a record high and 76% of businesses are reporting access to labour as a current threat to UK labour market competitiveness.

While the government has an important role to play, navigating the immediate challenge is going to require business-led solutions too.

Join our business network to inform your decision making by learning how other firms are taking steps to address shortages in their business. From strategies to maximise the existing talent pool, investing in skills, to improving productivity through technology adoption and leadership and management strategies, learn how firms are leaving no stone unturned to win the war for today’s talent.

Join us to discuss the following questions:

  • How have labour shortages affected your business?
  • What steps can firms consider taking to ease the impact of shortages?
  • Have you adopted any strategies that have helped to address shortages?
  • How can firms prioritise and evaluate what strategies would benefit their business?

Here are five good reasons to join this network:

  • Expertise – it is an exclusive network for senior HR professionals and those with a major HR function in their job role
  • Intelligence - hear from CBI senior policy adviser, Katie Miller, who will provide insight and lead the discussion on the changing workforce
  • Shared learning - exchange practical ideas about how to make your leadership, management and working practices more effective at driving business performance
  • Forward thinking – discuss the major barriers standing in the way of exceptional leadership, engagement and development practices
  • Leave with practical takeaways which can be implemented into your business.
