Talent Management Conference

Talent and business in 2022: Attracting, Engaging, Optimising and Growing Talent

What types of employer brands elicit the highest response from the labour market? What drives those people to join that company, work hard and stay for years to come? What core talent management practices stand the test of time while allowing for flexibility when business or market conditions change?
