Opening doors

Dissecting the truths on attracting and retaining diverse talent.

Taking a fresh approach to attracting new and diverse talent.

New research carried out by the IPA and Debut, to be unveiled a the IPA’s upcoming webinar, will uncover some raw truths about how the younger generation perceives our world – the good, the bad and the ugly. Join us and a panel of experts as we unpick the research findings, discuss a new path to attracting and retaining fresh talent and analyse what we need to do next.

In an increasingly embattled entry-level talent market, we need to attract the brightest, most curious, diverse, creative and hungry minds – and it is incumbent upon us to keep them, nourish them and work with them to grow them and our businesses. This event will uncover invaluable insights on how to do this best.
