There seems to be so much talk about potential effects on our business of technology and automation, the future threats of Brexit, skills gaps and an aging population, but what positive steps are we taking now to tackle these challenges in our own organisations and turn them into opportunities?

As the business environment becomes ever more complex and uncertain, companies must look to leverage more power from their people to react faster and enable them to compete in an increasingly competitive world.

If organisations are to achieve their full potential, it is up to their business leaders and managers to find the right people strategies to foster growth and plan for the future.

Creating a people centered work culture, uncovering hidden talents within employees, hiring wisely and leading with clarity and vision all form part of an effective people development strategy.

Support and advice on how to put people at the heart of any business and ensure continued sustained success is being provided free of charge at ‘People Power’ – an event taking place on 6th June at St James’ Park.

CIPD North East of England, who are one of the many exhibitors at this new event, commented ‘we are delighted to be exhibiting at this event.  The event demonstrates the commitment of our region to have fantastic people practices and offers attendees an opportunity to network and hear from a range of top skills, training and education providers’.
