Future of work - how can you combat skills shortages?

Who should attend

This half-day virtual workshop is aimed at those with recruitment experience and responsibility for the talent of the future. This includes HR professionals, global mobility professionals, recruiters, in-house legal professionals and diversity and inclusion leads.


Many UK employers are facing skills shortages at present with a record numbers of vacancies, both in highly skilled roles and low-wage occupations. This workshop will provide you with the opportunity to explore market practice in detail and benefit from the collaborative conversations which will take place to address how organisations can address skills shortages and mitigate risk when implementing proposed solutions.

Skills shortages combined with their Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) implications are often a boardroom agenda item and this session will increase awareness of market practice, provide you with an opportunity to present viable solutions to your wider business and take pro-active steps to secure the talent of the future.

This workshop will involve specialist recruiters from leading UK employers together with a team of dedicated lawyers with experience in employment law, immigration and diversity and inclusion to explore skills shortage challenges and potential solutions.

We will focus on the following areas:

  • current skills shortages for UK employers and resulting operational challenges
  • retraining opportunities for the existing workforce given increased reliance on technology
  • employment strategies to address skills shortages
  • immigration options to support with skills shortages
  • engaging with the talent of the future
  • diversity and inclusion considerations when recruiting from a limited talent pool
