Culture Clash London officially launched
Senior HR professionals and people specialists in the UK are being invited to take part in an exclusive networking event at London’s RSA House on October 20th as part of The HR World’s Culture Clash series.
The London event follows the success of The HR World’s first-ever in-person debate at Bristol’s Engine Shed and is held in partnership with the University of Bristol to investigate what is coming next for emerging talent in the UK as we enter 2023.
Sponsored by leading UK recruitment process outsourcing firm Sanderson Solutions and Given, the agency for purpose-driven businesses, the all-day event will include a high-level panel debate and a keynote speaker.
After lunch, the afternoon will be specially facilitated focus groups investigating the challenges facing young people making their first steps into employment, followed by a drinks reception.
The Culture Clash Series was designed to bring progressive leaders from across industry to share problems in a safe space leading to providing solutions to support emerging talent across all communities.
Findings from both Culture Clash Bristol and London along with a national survey will be produced as a market research insight report in January, ahead of the next round of graduate hiring activity.
Ross Crook, managing director at Sanderson Solutions and panellist at Culture Clash Bristol, said: “The discussion in Bristol was a fresh look at the issues facing employers seeking to attract the best talent in highly competitive and volatile markets.
“We are looking forward to this next stage of the journey, drilling down into these insights, the future of work strategies and bringing them to a wider market to help our clients and the industry in general create hiring strategies that work.”
Ben Hayman, chief client officer at Given, said: “Businesses are having to work harder than before to attract top young talent from not just the red brick universities but across diverse and changing communities.
“Culture Clash is a unique opportunity for us to support HR leaders as they understand more about how they can make themselves more competitive and create inclusive, purpose-driven cultures – something Gen Z consistently says they look for when deciding on their future employer.”
Sarah Rice, director and editor of The HR World, said: “The HR World is dedicated to finding solutions to some of the most pressing challenges facing the world of work.
“Young people are at the heart of the recovery and it is fascinating hearing how different organisations are developing strategies to engage, recruit and retain young people.
“Next year is set to be a big one for business and talent alike and we’re looking forward Culture Clash London revealing some incredible insights that will help both communities move forward with purpose.”
Panellists and speakers will be announced later this month.
