Purpose of the Session
We are delighted to host our latest Virtual Roundtable Event to explore how Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes can be used to support skills development and employability for people with barriers with entry to employment.
Our guest speakers Sally Eley, Director of the City & Guilds Foundation, John Paddock from B&M Stores, and Evelyn Bate (Head of Academy) from Nestle, will share insights from their own skills development programmes and how these have driven benefits at both an individual and business level.
Now more than ever before organisations need new talent to drive their organisations forward. Both Nestle and B&M Stores have implemented work placement programmes that open doors for young and disadvantaged people to offer them opportunities and develop future talent.
Join the discussion to learn how carefully implemented skills-based CSR programmes can help your organisation to be an Employer of Choice and attract, retain, and maintain a happy workforce, whilst generating positive publicity and media opportunities for your brand.
The session will be chaired by Michael Osbaldeston from City & Guilds with inputs from the City & Guilds Foundation, B&M Stores and Nestle followed by virtual breakout session for networking.
