In today’s fast-paced, constantly evolving workplace, there is a multitude of challenges faced by employers with regards to their candidates. How do you successfully attract and engage with them? Besides, how do you ensure that you build on their skills and retain them?

Whatever your main challenge is, we will cover the solutions at this breakfast event in our intimate roundtable discussions and from our expert speakers. As recruiters, it is difficult to ensure you are ticking all three boxes of attracting, retaining and upskilling, but with the right approach and mindset – it is more than possible.
