As we know, the extraordinarily tight labour market is one of the key challenges for business today, so The Chamber is looking to bring clarity, connectedness, and conversations around some of the important labour topics through hosting a series of targeted information sessions as part of a Resourcing Your Business in Today's Labour Market for Canterbury business.
Over the morning you will have the opportunity to hear from Canterbury businesses who will present in seminar style sessions running consecutively, providing ideas on opportunities to recruit, train, upskill or outsource.
And the beauty of the morning and our registration system is it allows you to be able to select the sessions you are interested in, be that one or all of them for one price.
