How to create an inclusive culture to attract and retain the best talent

Watch on demand

Today’s global job market is as competitive as ever, with critical skills shortages and an ongoing war for talent hampering many companies’ ability to attract and retain the best talent. At the same time, professionals are beginning to look for more than just a pay cheque from their employers, instead seeking out purpose-driven employers with values aligned to their own.

Our research shows that talent from both majority and minority groups are eager to work for organisations with inclusive, values-based cultures. If the ‘war for talent’ is won or lost on company culture, what can be done to transform outdated company cultures into ones which are truly inclusive and desirable to top talent?

In this latest webinar from the Robert Walters Group, join ED&I expert Dan Robertson, Director at VERCIDA Consulting, as we explore:

  • The current skills shortage crisis and what motivates top talent to move roles
  • What an inclusive culture looks and feels like for all employees
  • Actionable steps for building an inclusive culture that appeals to both majority and minority groups

Dan will also be joined by Dr Chhaya Dhar Sinha, Head of Regional Diversity, Equity & Inclusion - Asia, MEA at Levi Strauss & Co., and John Nicholls, Senior Director and Country Site Lead at PayPal, who will share their experiences of cultural transformation and offer ideas and suggestions on how creating a more inclusive workplace can help your business to better attract and retain top talent.
