Talent Management Cycle:
Session Six - Employee Engagement

This event will appeal to CEOs, GMs and HR professionals especially those involved in employee recruitment and staff retention. How do you get your employees' hearts and minds and create a better business? Our speaker will describe strategies, initiatives and mistakes that have been made in trying to create a winning team at Jaguar Land Rover in China and beyond.

What is Talent Management Cycle?
The Talent Management Cycle is a bi-monthly members-only discussion forum created to enable executives to exchange views on the best practice of Talent Management. Nowadays, talent is harder to find, train, retain than ever before thus we would like to go through the cycle session by session.

How does Talent Management Cycle work?
Panelists will be invited to give their insight into the latest trends, challenges and solutions facing their specific industry sector. There will be no presentations to encourage an active dialogue between speaker and audience. Through dialogue we hope that members not only exchange crucial market information in an enjoyable and relaxed environment, but gain new perspectives and problem solve. We also encourage participants to submit any questions, challenges or stories for discussion prior to the event. If you have a particular topic you would like to discuss at a forum in the future please email your suggestions to: angela.lock@sha.britcham.org
