For Scottish Enterprise account managed businesses. 3 March
Invisible Talent workshops with Scottish Enterprise Account Managed Businesses
Delivered by AAI EmployAbility, this workshop is designed for Scottish Enterprise account-managed businesses to improve their understanding of the processes that could be employed to attract and retain more diverse talent.
Employers across Scotland find themselves in a challenging landscape in relation to sourcing talented employees. Just two examples are the skills shortages reported in a number of fields and the impact of our uncertain relationship with the EU being a reduction in Europeans remaining here to work following graduation.
Research shows that well-qualified individuals, from backgrounds historically impacted by discrimination, are looking for work and are attracted by employers who are seen to promote inclusive practice.
Benefits of attending the Invisible Talent Workshops:
1. examine diversity and inclusion in the context of employment practice, the importance of both and the difference between them.
2. consider personal and business practices that can improve engagement with individuals facing barriers in society based on perceptions of difference.
3. create a proposed action plan to take back to your specific businesses to support with goal setting and forward momentum.
The Invisible Talents workshop will provide an opportunity for Scottish Enterprise (SE) Account Managers and SE portfolio businesses to gain a unique perspective on inclusive recruitment consulting practices, onboarding and inclusion processes. Participants will examine their current recruitment practices in the context of the labour market, the Scottish Government’s Inclusive Growth agenda and the Fair Work Framework.
