Description

How employment for all can make businesses more profitable

CIoS LEP, Cornwall Chamber of Commerce and the Federation of Small Business recognise that we need to guide business owners of all sizes, by building confidence when recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce.

Whilst Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly is leading on the inclusive growth agenda, we know we can only tackle these long term issues affecting growth in our region by working in collaboration. This event will be the starting point in working together with key stakeholders and businesses, to shape an action plan as to how Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly can be a 'beacon' region leading the way within the inclusive growth agenda.
