The race for talent. An already known challenge for many HR and recruitment professionals. Research shows there’s a voluntary turnover rate up to 15% in Singapore, and globally only 21% of employees feel engaged at work. In this time and age there seems to be more than enough HR challenges that need to be addressed. With this event we aim to give refreshing insights on how you can have a succesful “open door” to hire new talents and at the same time to invest in a closed “back door” by preventing valuable employees from leaving.
DutchCham invites you to discuss potential ways to get and/or retain a healthy workforce. Together with speakers of TalentSquare, Brunel and About People Consulting we will facilitate an inspirational panel discussion. During this panel discussion we make sure to have interaction with the audience, to answer your questions and discuss various case studies. Topics you can expect to be at least addressed:
