Attracting Top Talent for Rapid Growth

360° Club – Birmingham Drinks Forum

Venue: Hotel Du Vin, Central Birmingham
Date: June 16th, 6:30pm

At our recent London & Birmingham discussion evenings, a survey of over 70 360° Club members revealed that more than 80% are looking to aggressively expand in 2016/17.  Rapid growth and aggressive expansion are a common goal within our members for the obvious rewards that they bring. But with rapid growth a priority, how can you ensure you’ve got the right people to make this expansion a sustainable reality?

During periods of rapid growth, it can be tempting to hire quickly. You have business critical needs that are going unmet and any pair of hands are better than none. But, as the leader of a fast-growth business, you’ve probably been trapped by this desperation before. You’ve hired someone quickly, invested valuable resources into training them and because of a lack of cultural or job fit, you’re at risk of losing them to another company. And, you’re not alone. More than a third of businesses according to official LinkedIn research say that employee retention is a top priority for them over the next 12 months.

So, how are market leaders attracting and retaining top talent to stay ahead of their competitors through periods of rapid growth?

This is the question we will be answering at the 360° Club’s next discussion and networking evening on the 16th of June.

This discussion evening will hinge on the challenges inherent in staffing a fast growth business, how to recruit successfully, incentivise and keep hold of top talent. Our ultimate goal is to unite senior leaders of fast-growth organisations to evaluate best practices and exchange insights via a panel of expert speakers and guests.

A selection of our club members includes:

Managing Director at Vendability Operations Director at eNL Legal Senior Director, Operations at Autodesk Director of IT at eNL Legal Head of Enterprise at Gowling WLG Head of IT at Aga Rangemaster Director Transaction Services at Grant Thornton Director of Sales & Service – Telecoms at Adi Electrical Partner at Gowling WLG Partner at Q5 Partners Head of Sales and Client Relations at Trayport Managing Director at Iomart Chief Technology Officer at Assima Creative Director at Tin Can Digital Director at Pancentric Digital CEO and Founder at Bidspace CEO at Drakes Partner at Chelsea Apps Factory Managing Director at Physicool Head of Talent at Worldremit
and many more…

Join us on the 16th of June at a central Birmingham location, when the pitfalls and pressures of staffing for growth will be explained and resolved by our expert panel. The evening will begin at 18:30 with networking drinks and canapés. This will lead into our opening speaker, more drinks and canapés and then our famous “question time” panel session.
