About this event

Are your employee skills keeping pace with the growth of your business? Is your business lacking the skills it needs to grow?

This 2-hour webinar helps you assess the skills of your current workforce, and identify those needed to help your business grow. Using simple tools and techniques that you can apply to your business, it also helps you identify those skills which you might need to recruit for, which can’t be developed with your current staff.

Whether it’s customer service skills, planning strategy, managing websites, marketing, sales or something else… we will help you identify it and create a solution.

What’s more, the webinar will also highlight training and funding opportunities available from HEYLEP to support you.

The webinar includes:

• How you can assess the skills currently in your workforce

• How to prioritise the skills you need in the short, medium and long term

• Deciding when to recruit or train

• Where to source training and support for your skills needs

This bite sized webinar, supported by an optional 4-hour face to face workshop, will help you develop the workforce needed to support your growing business. Companies needing more intensive support can attend both sessions, or the face to face workshop. Companies wanting an update on new skills development ideas, may wish to gain an update from the 2hr webinar.

Who should attend?

Business owners or Directors currently employing staff, and who wish to check whether they have the correct systems and procedures in place, or owners of new companies wishing to employ staff.

The webinar will be delivered by Edward Ryder from Biskit Ltd.

Edward has over 25 years of business experience, and currently provides consultancy support to multiple high growth engineering, e-commerce and manufacturing companies across the UK.
