Recruiting & Retaining A Diverse Workforce

DATE: Thursday, 15th September 2022

TIME: 11.00 am


Join us as we explore the full picture of ‘Recruiting & Retaining a Diverse Workforce’ and hear best practice and practical tips from our panel of speakers.

Recruitment and Retention – no effective staffing strategy can have one without the other. Many studies have confirmed the benefits that come from greater diversity in the workplace, but focussing on recruitment by itself only gives part of the picture. Retention and progression practices that foster a feeling of belonging and inclusion are just as vital to creating the workplaces where new recruits want to stay.

  • What steps can organisations take to improve diversity in recruiting?
  • How to avoid the revolving door syndrome?  
  • Why cultural ‘add’ is better than cultural fit?  

All these questions and more will be answered by a panel of speakers from different sectors that have been accredited with our Investors in Diversity mark. Join us as we explore the full picture of ‘Recruiting & Retaining a Diverse Workforce’ and hear best practice and practical tips from:

  • Kate Butler – Inclusion and Diversity Lead, Bank of Ireland
  • David Nally – Head of HR, Woodies
  • Fiona Triller – Advisor/Trainer, Irish Centre for Diversity

The event will be hosted by Andrew Campbell-Edie, our Communications Manager. This event will also feature an exciting announcement that you won’t want to miss.
