Free event on recruiting and retaining staff

Devon County Council and Plymouth Chamber of Commerce are to host the New Ways to Recruit and Retain Staff in 2023 event.

With the region’s job market still facing a range of vacancies, this free event aims to help employers, organisations and charities to find out about alternative ways of recruiting and retaining staff.

The event, which will be held at Exeter Racecourse on Monday 24 April from 8:30am to 1pm, will focus on supporting employers to consider filling vacancies using a wider talent pool of people, how to support those already in employment, to better understand workplace culture and to review how traditional recruitment methods can be adjusted to attract a different audience.

Speakers on the day include Mike Adams OBE, Founder of Purple Tuesday, who will discuss what organisations must do to be disability inclusive, as well as Helen Hart, from Devon and Plymouth Chamber of Commerce’s Local Skills improvement Plan Project Executive, and Ruth Gripper, Research Impact Manager at the University of Exeter.

There will also be discussion groups on a number of different topics.
