Training workshops on how to become an employer of choice for young people

Events & Training

This year we will be hosting a series of training workshops both face-to-face and through online video courses so if you prefer then you can watch from the comfort of your office. As a social enterprise, we want to help support businesses to understand what is takes to attract the next generation and become employers of choice.

About the events

In the latest Quarterly Economic Survey by the Chambers, 60% of businesses said they attempted to recruit and 58% of these reported difficulties in recruiting. Access Generation CIC found that two out of three Leicestershire companies had a very poor or non existent job or careers section on their website.

Currently the employment market is tightening, competition for experienced people is greater and costs associated with the use of agencies remains high. So, what can you do to take control of your attraction and recruitment?

Join Access Generation for a free half-day workshop to learn from the experience and insights gained from their research over 200 Leicestershire companies. Find out the do’s and don’ts for the candidate journey, support content and employer brand to help you attract and recruit the right candidates.

This training workshop will include guided activities and conversations.
