Episode 20: 24th May 2018

Does your business suffer at the  mercy of the ‘Skills Gap’? Are you struggling to find or keep expertise within your business? This week’s topical discussion focuses on what this all means and whether, as some say, it’s even a ‘thing’.  We look at what can be done to attract talent, identify gaps in your workforce and perhaps more importantly consider what it takes to keep skills within your business.

Events this week continue with the skills theme but also sees the dreaded GDPR rear it’s head and if all that’s too much to bear we also have something for those looking to plan their exit strategy.

25th May – Shropshire Business Board/Marches LEP – Skills Round Table

12th June – Alternative Exit Strategies

15th June – Beyond The Restrictions of GDPR – Coleg Cambria

15th- 17th November – World Skills Uk

Our reviews section looks at the JVP Future of HR event highlighted a few weeks ago when MD Cath Harrison joined us in the studio. Listen to what Tracy had to say about it.

We also look at the Indeed job search app (available through the usual channels) which Tracy had used to seek candidates for a recent post she has been looking to fill.

Not wanting to short change you and knowing how much we love our book reviews, Heather checked out www.fourminutebooks.com which a friend of the show commented ‘sounded terrible’ but dear reader, we beg to differ. It does exactly what it says on the tin but is a valuable ‘try before you buy’ resource.

Guru of the week is Liam Burgess of Nom Nom. Now why wouldn’t two women of a certain age be interested in a young entrepreneur and apparent Welsh Legend (number 8 on the list) who made his money from chocolate. An all round good egg Burgess has the ability to inspire and motivate for all the right reasons.
