The CEX Working Group was established in our region in 2022 to look at issues around recruitment and retention and how we can help councils to utilise untapped talent pools for those hard to fill roles.  A fair amount of work has now taken place across the region and we had our conference event in November 2023 to look at and share best practice around recruitment and retention.

From this work, we intend to set up a series of Master Classes for HR professionals in the region on a variety of topics – the first of which is this one which focuses on Recruitment & Retention.  We are working with our colleagues in the NE Regional Employers Organisation to bring you these sessions.

We are excited to invite you to our FREE upcoming Recruitment and Retention Masterclass, where we will explore the essential aspects of talent acquisition and employee engagement. With a dynamic Running Order and insightful content, this masterclass promises to equip you with the knowledge and tools needed to address your recruitment challenges effectively.

Session overview: This masterclass, based on years of experience and real-world examples, will provide practical insights into addressing recruitment issues. The sections include:
