Drawing on his experience as the current President of Swansea Bay Business Club and Deputy to the Lord-Lieutenant, our managing director, Alan Brayley, shared his insights and joined a digital discussion on the future of sourcing and retaining talent in Wales.
The event, an edition of Business News Wales’ Digital Discussions with The Open University, was held on Wednesday May 12 via zoom.
In addition to our managing director’s involvement, the event also featured Rhys Griffiths, host and the Open University’s business relationship manager in Wales, and Peter Lewis, managing director at Industrial Automation & Control.
The discussion investigates the issues facing Welsh businesses in sourcing new employees and keeping them upskilled and motivated to stay with their employers.
This issue has been amplified by the pandemic due to the disruption of key skill development and apprentice schemes, a vital source of talent for Welsh businesses.
Sharing his insight on this important matter, Alan Brayley said: “We actively encourage staff personal development within our organisation, and consistently evaluate the progress they are making.
“I’m all for apprenticeship schemes, and I think earn while you learn is a fantastic phrase to describe them.”
