Webinar – Thursday, 26 May 2022 (9.30-10.30am, on GoToWebinar)

The third in our series of webinars will again reveal key statistics and will be based on a Q&A format.

A panel will then take questions from the host and the attendees. Surveys and live polls will ensure that the speakers cover the aspects that the attendees deem most important.

For this session on talent acquisition and retention, or what others might call recruiting and keeping top-performing employees, we envisage that the questions will be based on:

  • the eye-catching data that will be revealed
  • employee expectations in 2022 and beyond
  • what do ‘compelling reasons’ to join/stay actually look like?
  • attracting and retaining female talent
  • the top reasons why employees leave a law firm
  • how managers need to change their approach

In particular, this webinar will give you a set of actions to implement, rather than just describing the problem.

Anne talks sense, backed up by evidence, and gets to the point.

The webinar will be hosted by Andy Poole, a partner at Armstrong Watson.

The panel will be made up of:
