The Humber branch of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) is once again working in partnership with the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) to deliver their annual conference during Humber Business Week (week commencing 4th June 2018).

Named ‘Transforming the Humber 2018 – thriving in a candidate-led market’, this stimulating and informative event will focus on how we can grow a sustainable and skilled workforce in the region by attracting talent, exploring alternative retention practices and sharing research and tools to help organisations with workforce planning.

Hosted at the Mercure Hotel, Willerby on Tuesday 5th June the event commences with networking opportunities over refreshments at 8.00am, with key note speakers including Daphne Doody, the Head of CIPD Northern Region, Kishor Tailor, CEO of the Humber LEP and Julie Williams, Chair of the Humber Talent Forum.

Workshop sessions for all participants focus on three topical areas; Surviving Brexit, including the launch of a new toolkit for employers, Bridging the Gap through the work of the Careers and Enterprise Company and Re-training and Retaining through innovative solutions to local staffing needs in a competitive environment.

Phil Quinn, Chair of the Humber CIPD said:

“This annual event always delivers some exciting new thinking around the whole people resource issue.  We are delighted to welcome our members, stakeholders and partners to attend and participate in what will be lively discussions and workshops as we recognise the need to attract and retain a talent pool for our Humber organisations.”

The event is free to attend and bookings can be made on the Eventbrite site using this link.

Early booking is recommended as the previous events were filled to capacity. Transforming the Humber 2018 will also include opportunities to discuss solutions to resourcing and training needs by meeting with colleagues in a ‘Solutions Village’ which offers a range of options for businesses of all sizes.

Kishor Tailor, CEO Humber LEP added:

“We are very pleased to work again in partnership with our CIPD colleagues who support the work of the LEP all year round by providing information on skills gaps within local organisations.  The LEP is always keen to engage with employers as we see the significant progress made in the local economy.”
