As people became accustomed to WFH and hybrid working, many used the time to re-evaluate their priorities. The result was the Great Resignation and an ensuing talent shortage. It’s one of the biggest dilemmas for today’s HR leaders, but those organisations that are willing to put continuous learning at the heart of their people strategies will be best-placed to solve it.

An effective L&D strategy helps to close a company’s skills gap and retain its employees for the long-term. Unfortunately, industries such as retail and hospitality, and deskless workers more generally, often don’t have the same opportunities for upskilling. 

So, how can HR leaders rectify this lack of accessibility and inclusivity? And what are some examples of best practice that companies can employ for short-term relief? Join the editor of Work magazine for a senior-level roundtable discussion at Enoteca Rosso. 

Hear expert and peer opinion on the following discussion points and more…

  • What are the most common pitfalls in L&D strategies?
  • How can HR teams ensure that every employee can engage in L&D? 
  • What does an equal opportunity strategy look like?
  • Why is retail less equipped to support its employees in L&D? 
  • And how can the HR teams within them overcome these challenges?
  • Are there any quick wins for HR professionals?
  • How can companies build a strategy that supports long-term L&D?
