BID Hosts Latest People Forum
HR Managers and Directors joined the BID at its Autumn People Forum on 4th October. The lunchtime sessions are designed to provide best practice learning for those involved in the recruitment and development of people on Manor Royal. This time, the session focused on Recruitment and was kindly hosted by Welland Medical in Hydehurst Lane.
Guests heard from a panel of recruitment experts about the latest trends in the local job market and were given tips on how to recruit more effectively. The panel comprised Gary Peters, Founder and Chief Executive of award winning ICP Search and LoveLocalJobs.com; Julie Kapsalis, Group Managing Director of the Chichester College Group/Crawley College and Simon Hill, Networking & New Business Manager of Clearwater People Solutions. The interactive session was chaired by Joanne Rogers of Prowse & Co. Ltd.
As well as providing personal anecdotes, key themes from the speakers included how to engage more effectively with young people, the importance of company reputations when recruiting and the need to use progressive recruitment policies including flexible working.
Guests were also introduced to Rob and Lee from the Jelf Group, which is a new BID partner that provides discounted insurance and financial services products for companies and people located on Manor Royal Business District. (See Benefits Page of this website for more info.)
Everyone then had the opportunity to network over a delicious buffet lunch.
The next Manor Royal People Forum will held in January 2018.
