In episode #34 your host, Chris Broome, holds Mastermind Session #2 named Business Challenges: Addressing the Skills Gap
We are joined by Jon Corbett (Barclays); Mark Clement (Grant Thornton); and Simon Arkell (EMW Law).
Here we talk through the common challenges faced when trying to recruit and retain a team capable of growing a business.
We cover off how to identify if someone has the right skills for the job; how infrastructure and internal policies can play a key role (including office location/flexibility/agile working/connectivity); and what compensation and incentive packages could be considered (including EMI shares).
We also talk through the Silverstone business region; its importance in the development of the Oxford to Cambridge #SuperCluster; and how firms can pull together to ensure the best talent remains committed to the area.
**Legal notice** The purpose of the Mastermind Sessions recording is to provide a brief overview of the types of issues a typical business owner faces. It is not intended as formal professional advice. If you require assistance with your particular circumstances, we recommend that professional advice be sought from a qualified expert.
