Workforce Skills Crisis In New Zealand

About this event

New Zealand is experiencing a workforce skills crisis that has long been in the making and has now been exacerbated and accelerated by the COVID crisis. As we shift from response to adapting to our new world of work, organisations must take action to better position themselves to tackle the skills crisis, head on.

This requires organisations to instigate innovative interventions and think beyond usual attraction and retention strategies and levers. While pay and culture remain important – particularly in a market where the workforce knows its value – organisations must reconsider their broader, longer term investment in workforce skills for today and pipelines for tomorrow.

Join us on Tuesday 12 July 1:00- 2:00pm for this webinar where our panel will discuss these challenges and provide best practices and examples of innovative interventions beyond the usual attraction and retention strategies and levers. This will be followed by a Q&A session.
