Use your people strategy to save money and time

This session will look at creating a people strategy and explore means and ways of enabling efficiencies in time and resources to release your staff to do what they do best - teach or support.

We'll consider aspects including recruitment and retention, flexible working and absence management. Investing time and resource into designing and implementing a strong people strategy tailored to your Trust's needs can yield significant savings in the long run, while also maximising talent and employee engagement.
