However, most businesses still consider talent acquisition and retention tactically.With so many priorities to juggle, founders can often put their main focus on product and customers, and struggle to find time to grow and manage their internal organisation.

Complete Resourcing are hosting a workshop on Thursday 25th May, that will provide you with the ability to develop the strategy, develop a value proposition to attract world-class talent at all levels (including the board), and the techniques to qualify, secure and retain exceptional people.
