Cumbria Business Owners and Leaders Forum

Attracting and Retaining Talent through Inspiration, Recognition and Reward

Businesses across Cumbria continue to face a growing skills shortage. The reasons are varied, however there are strategies organisations can take to help combat this issue, from developing and ‘growing your own’ talent, through to creating an environment and culture that nurtures and rewards loyalty and success.

Join us as we hear from retention strategy and people engagement specialist Shelley Hayward from ‘People Keepers’ as she highlights some of the actions business owners can take to engage with upcoming ‘stars’. We’ll also look at how the apprenticeship levy and accredited degrees can be utilised to develop talent, with Carlisle College Principal, Grant Glendinning, providing an overview of the opportunities available.
