English

This seminar will talk about key progress in our industry and methodology that organisations are now adopting. It will include a panel of talent attraction and diversity heads across the industry talking and telling us straight not just about recruitment methods but how to ensure employees are retained and developed once recruited. 

This is a great seminar to come along to if you are a hiring manager and want to learn about more inclusive techniques for your recruitment methods. It’s also great for people looking to get into publishing to understand the new ways that publishers are hiring and investing in the workforce of the future.
