How to keep talent in your business

That a business' biggest asset is it's staff is the premise of a forthcoming Big Talent Breakfast, which will seek to answer an age old conundrum - 'how do you keep your best workers?'.

Due to take place at the Three Counties Showground on June 25 the event will explore not just keeping talent, but finding it too.

Organised by Harrison Clark Rickerbys (HCR), it will also include keynote speaker Carmen Watson, chair and managing director of Pertemps - named as the Institute of Directors' Director of the year 2018.

Ms Watson currently also leads a £400m turnover company which specialises in identifying and developing talent.

She will be joined on a panel by Gloucestershire's own Roman Cooper, executive director of security and fire system family business Allcooper and Matthew Burgess, principal and chief executive of Gloucestershire College.

Jenny Okafor-Jones, head of HCR's employment team, said: "Recruiting and retaining talented people is key to the success of any organisation; this event will capture some expert views on how to do this and what works in the real world; it promises to be really valuable."

The event, in partnership with Allcooper, property and asset consultancy PACT and the Three Counties Showground, will run from 8am to 10am, with breakfast, keynote session, panel discussion and Q and A, as well as a chance to network with organisation leaders.
