Merging with the Talent Group back in September 2021 has given the Development Board a clear strategy for what we want to tackle this year.
Supporting members with the challenges that they are faced with around attracting and retaining the right talent to the industry is fundamental to ensuring we have a sustainable workforce to future proof our sector for years to come.
Current recruitment strategies and resonating with job seekers via traditional means is not working, and we have a duty of care to change that so that we can be a viable option for people with the right acumen to join us.
We need to understand what makes people tick and what staffs expectations are of us as employers, ensuring we align with an evolving set of values and stay relevant.
Launching the Employee Benchmark and Salary Study will be our main output for 2022, using the insight from this to plan a campaign that will meet the needs of our members and those that we are seeking to attract.
We will use meetings to touch base and plan next steps, meeting face to face and virtually on a quarterly basis.
We look forward to sharing future updates with the wider membership via AEO’s social media channels and news platforms over the coming year, with a long term aim to give the Talent Hub a much needed refresh, filled with resources that they can tap into.
