Your people remain the most vital and important asset to growth and success, well trained colleagues remain motivated, engaged, and loyal. As organisations continue the inevitable streamlining of their business costs the result can often be at the detriment of the people functions, most notably with the training and development resource. This subsequently leads to the downturn in organisational performance, a dis-engaged workforce and loss of operational skills, resulting in ongoing turnover and recruitment. In a sector where competition for the best people will become the biggest challenge, the two factors to remain in focus will be: Attracting and Retaining the best people.
