Our skills shortage: Attracting great staff and keeping them

THE SEMINAR:

The skills shortage is rated as the number one issue affecting workshop sustainability and growth. This seminar will tackle this big issue head-on, revealing the extent of the problem, and how it affects the bottom line. Importantly, this Seminar will provide some much-needed optimism about what can we do to attract staff and how we can address our shortages; both as an industry and at the individual workshop level. We are in a serious skills crisis but as an industry, we can work together to address the greatest challenge of our time: Finding good staff and keeping them.
