Findings from 'Building and retaining employees' twitter chat

On Monday 17th July 2017, the Forum held a twitter chat on the subject of ‘Building and retaining the next generation of employees.’ Here are the findings collated from all those involved along with supporting information and tweets from participants. 

Building and retaining the next generation of employees is a critical factor in a business’ success. Without selecting the right employee, building their skill and creating the right environment for them to want to stay, you could find yourself facing all sorts of issues. These include managing individuals with a low level of will, not the right skill set for the role and a high staff turnover rate – all of which lead to extra costs incurred by the business and valuable time wasted.
