Finding and retaining good people for your business is a challenge. We hear so much in the media about unemployment, but the experience of most business owners is that there is no pool of great talent waiting at the front door.
Of course it is essential for businesses to identify their competitive advantages in the marketplace. But equally important is to identify and nurture their competitive advantage as a sought after employer.
This Business Owners Forum event will be held at the BNZ Partners facility on Constellation Drive, North Harbour at 5:30pm on Thursday 19 April 2012 – and will run through to 7:30pm on the night.
Here are the quality panelists for this event:
Heidi Johnston – Managing Director of Windowmakers Limited. Heidi led Windowmakers to success as winner of the Employer of Choice Award at the 2010 Enterprise North Shore Business Excellence Awards, so she has a wealth of insights into this topic. Come and hear how Heidi has created an organisation that is at the top of its game as a sought after employer.
Rosemarie McCarthy – Managing Director and Owner of Entertainment International Limited. Rosemarie’s business employs a large number of call centre operators in a diverse team with representatives from most ethnic groups in Auckland. Rosemarie’s success is dependent on her ability to retain a competitive advantage as a sought after employer. Come along and hear some of the tips and traps from Rosemarie’s journey
Bryce Johns, Editor – Herald on Sunday. Herald on Sunday is an employer that stands or falls on its ability to attract and retain top talent. Bryce has some valuable insight on how this organisation rises to that challenge. Come along and glean some tips, techniques and strategies from Bryce’s story that you can take back and utilise in your business.
This Business Owners Forum will be a must attend for business owners who recognise the need to develop a competitive advantage as an employer of choice.
As always for Business Owners Forum events, this session will be free of charge and completely free of sales pitches from the supporters or the panelists. And there will be pizza, beer and wine to lubricate quality discussion.
Business Owners Forums are held monthly on the third Thursday of the month – alternating between North Harbour and Whangarei venues.
