What keeps Growing Talent relevant after 9+ years?

🎇 Content keeps evolving?
🎇 Structure and format is continually reviewed?
🎇 It’s inclusive?
🎇 Unique applicants every time?
🎇 A robust audit trail to evaluate progress and empower participants?
🎇 Disruption of traditional recruitment practices?
🎇 A mutual test drive to ensure a confident fit?
🎇 Robust pre-onboarding enhances retention?
🎇 Life skills and accredited mental health and wellbeing in line with ISO45003
🎇 Funded by business not Government?
🎇 Completely free for employers to find unique, diverse local talent?
🎇 Mentor assigned for employers and participants?
🎇 Collaboration – employers, unemployed, JobCentre Plus, YouthBuild, Heretoga Ltd, Southwark Care Leavers, Ingeus and Growing Talent?

I’d say ‘yes’ to all of the above – but, for me, it’s the people and their passion across the whole collaboration that makes Growing Talent more relevant today than ever before.

In addition to the great chat with Izzy from Heretoga this morning, a fabulous way to end the day was a chat with Mike and some of his team from Ingeus.

So much passion and drive to get people into work – the energy is contagious!

On behalf of the lives we will change on Growing Talent34 – thank you to everyone involved. 👏 👏 👏 – take a bow.
