Retaining and Attracting Qualified Talent

The biggest issue coming from employers is the shortage of qualified, experienced accountants and how hard it is proving to retain and attract them. There seem to be increasing incidences of competitors poaching staff, sometimes even before they are qualified, and upward pressure on salaries.

This session will examine the approaches that employers can use to keep their own staff engaged and loyal when they qualify, plus how to be as appealing as possible to experienced candidates in the marketplace looking for their next role.


As ever guest speakers will join the discussion, we will also hear contributions from insight specialists at AAT, ACCA, CIMA and ICAEW.

This event is free and open to anyone interested in the topic of retaining and attracting qualified staff in the accountancy and finance industry.
