Candidate Attraction: How to win the race for talent - Free Workshop

It all boils down to one simple statement – the people with the best people win. Every time!

Without the people, we simply cannot function and without people, we certainly cannot grow.

Lancashire is one of the largest economies in the Northern Powerhouse with 50,000 businesses generating £28 billion per year. And what is it that fuels these businesses? Talented people.

With employment rates at their highest since the 1970’s, the talent pool is becoming increasingly squeezed and we need to work harder than ever to stand out as employers of choice.

It’s imperative that we adopt a proactive rather than reactive candidate attraction strategy, which means that when we need to recruit, we have a selection of approved candidates that we can approach immediately rather than having to rely on job adverts.
