Business Future

You know the world of work is changing so use this half-day event to learn more about how other employers are using family friendly policies and practices as a tool to recruit and retain the best people.

The first in a series of Business Futures events, Building a Family Friendly Working Culture will take a wide look at creating a family friendly working culture - the benefits for employers and employees.
