With a well-publicised skills shortage affecting businesses across the region and the number of vacancies steadily rising, employers are struggling to find the talent they need to grow and enhance their productivity.
As part of our People & Skills strategy, D2N2 is encouraging employers to widen their search for talent to include those who might be excluded from traditional recruiting processes for a variety of reasons, despite possessing the skills employers increasingly require.
Recruiting Talent is the D2N2-wide initiative aimed at increasing inclusive recruitment amongst businesses.
Recruiting Talent aims to prompt business leaders to look in new areas for talent that often experience barriers to the workplace, be they for health, logistical, or situation reasons.
By amending their recruitment processes to be more inclusive, businesses can unlock an untapped pool of talent, allowing them to fill their skills gaps.
