NEW FOR 2020!


Focus on Talent...Becoming the Preferred Employer facilitated by Theresa Van Es

Presented by London Economic Development Corporation and Fanshawe Corporate Training Solutions

Recruiting and retaining the right people for your organization can be challenging. In a tight labor market, every company is competing for the same talent, and the employee is now in the driver’s seat.
Innovative thinking is a necessity to become the preferred employer and meet the needs of your future workforce.

Participants will learn:

  • Reviewing key skills and gaps of your team to determine the skills required by one or all to keep up with the current change in pace

  • Best practices to build a culture of internal mobility to reduce skills shortage and create an action plan of employee development

  • Develop a strategy to start upskilling and investing in training

  • Fostering new ways of partnering, collaborating, communicating, and augmenting recruitment with technology
