South Essex Network Twilight

The Forum Southend, Elmer Square, Southend-on-Sea, Essex SS1 1NS

Wednesday 22nd March 2017
4:30pm - 6:30pm

95% of businesses make bad hiring decisions every year. Fact.
Skills shortages, the war for talent and modern technology affect our ability to find the right people who are so badly needed to help our businesses thrive and grow.
So how do businesses attract that talent? Skills shortages and the millennial generation with their work life balance expectations contrast greatly when compared to the work values of us who started our careers in the last millennium.   And what about the invisible marketing tool, your employer brand?
What does the affect of not replying to applicants who show an interest in your company have on your image? The chances are they have already told their friends about it which unbeknown to you could have a real negative affect to your employer brand. Nowadays attracting talent isn’t just about putting an advert in a paper. Social media, Google and professional job boards have changed the recruitment landscape for good; and its still evolving.

Join Ian and learn some of the secrets of how to attract the best people for your business and more importantly, how to make sure that they stay.
Ian Banks, owner of One to One Personnel has been a professional recruiter for over 20 years and has learned how to avoid making the costly mistakes of bad recruitment, and by his own admission is still surprised by how little time organisations put into finding the best talent for their businesses; the constant learning curve!
