“Exploring the employee lifecycle journey”

14th March 2017 Smartworking Summit brochureAs the workplace continues to evolve at an astounding, unrelenting pace, and the knowledge worker (those who generate value with their minds more than with their muscle) increasingly become the prevalent labour group (60% of the overall workforce and 88% of the service sector), it begs the question “How much do we know about today’s employee life cycle?”

A few brutal facts are;

  • 75% of the hard-won newly hired top talent (those with degree and above) leave within the first 2 years, citing dull management and workplaces not optimised for productive work.
  • Over the next decade, there will be 13.5 million job vacancies advertised but less than 7 million people leaving schools and universities.  How is this 6.5 million shortfall going to be bridged?
  • With most organisations talking of having ‘stripped the labour market’ and 93% CEOs stating that they need to change their talent strategies to offer any chance for future growth, do we understand the talent pipeline?
    • What is being done about retaining an older workforce?
    • With 70% of graduates now women, is enough being done to attract and retain this critical workforce?
    • With 2.8 million people in the UK impacted by neurological differences, is enough being done to tap into the vast neurodiversity talent pool?
      • Surely neurodiversity needs to be respected on a par with gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or disability status?

Throughout the morning, this Summit explores the employee lifecycle journey and what needs to change to create the right work space...
