As a business, your most valuable resource is your people. Business Growth Hub is launching the Workforce Development Programme at two breakfast events in July that will support the growth of your business through investing in your employees.

The Workforce Development Programme is a fully funded service for growing SME businesses in Greater Manchester, providing the foundation for businesses to become high performing workplaces.

At these events there will be a masterclass taster session delivered by a practical leading specialist in creating high performance workplaces. You will take away tools and techniques from the events that you can put into practice in your workplace.

These events are for business leaders who:

  • Would like support for an organisational structure review
  • Want to improve performance through people development
  • See the benefit in attracting and retaining talent
  • Are looking to improve internal communication, develop an inclusive culture or have clear values which everybody works to
  • Require a skills gap analysis across the business

At this event you will:

  • Hear from guest speakers who have successfully grown their business through developing their people
  • Find out how your business can access the support and the upcoming masterclasses
  • Come away with an understanding of how the Workforce Development team can benefit your company’s growth potential
  • Speak to specialist advisers about your workplace requirements
  • There will also be a briefing on the upcoming Apprenticeship Levy
