Our Human Resources forum (HR forum) exists to share best practice in this area and tackle the major HR issues affecting our industry. This includes addressing the sector’s skills gap, attracting and retaining millennial workers and ensuring we don’t lose the knowledge, expertise and experience of a generation who will soon retire.
First established in 2007 by sister organisation ACE, the forum also covers issues such as equality and diversity, as well as training and education. Recognising that the issues facing EIC and ACE members are similar and as a result of the closer working relationship between the two organisations, the forum welcomed EIC members to its meeetings in 2021. The forum meets quarterly and the current chair is Helen Salt of ACE member, Curtins.
Adrian McDonagh, co-founder of recruitment experts Hireful, will be our guest speaker at the upcoming HR forum on Wednesday 11 May at 11am. The in-person meeting takes place at Arcadis' offices in central London and Adrian will discuss the war on talent, great resignation, and attracting new skills to our sector and is open to anyone working for an EIC member with a working interest in people matters.
