Event description

Description

Next generation employer brand and talent attraction is here.

Never before have employers needed to challenge assumptions so radically and find such creative, credible and sustainable ways to connect with new kinds of talent.

This half day summit is not your average event. It tackles the big challenges major employers are facing and brings together inspirational speakers from the multi-award-winning employer brand team at EY, Timewise, social mobility charity EY Foundation, King’s College London and The University of Greenwich.

They will explain the business case, provide insights and practical guidance on how employers can adapt their strategies and tactics to appeal to more diverse, disparate and demanding audiences.

By the end of the event you will understand:

  1. How you can connect with hidden talent pools to create diversity, innovation, and social mobility
  2. How to engage with a more contingent, gig-based workforce
  3. What really matters to people when it comes to talking about purpose and meaning at work?
    [Spoiler: It’s not what you’ve been told at all]
  4. How to be more effective at tapping in to the vast potential of the growing flexible workforce

Karen is a recognised leader in the area of flexible working. In 2005, driven by personal experience, Karen Mattison MBE identified the gap in the recruitment market for quality part-time jobs and co-founded Women Like Us in London, which became hugely successful at supporting women to find work that fitted around their family. She then launched Timewise Jobs in April 2012, in recognition of the fact that flexible working is not just a women’s issue. Timewise’s aim is to make ‘quality part-time jobs’ easily accessible to all. Three years ago Karen launched the Power Part Time list, a roll call of 50 men and women who work in senior roles on less than five days per week.
