Recruitment and Talent Management

Getting the right people, supporting their skill development and then keeping those people is so important. It can be a costly mistake to appoint the wrong person, not just because it costs an estimated £10,000 to recruit and train a new starter, and that’s on top of their salary and on-costs. The wrong appointment can damage the effectiveness of the whole team.
