The One Group invites you to attend the latest event that will explore the best ways to attract talent with views from every angle of the hiring industry. 

In the current employment climate attracting the highest  calibre candidates can be challenging at the best of times. Brand names are not enough anymore, the likes of Google and Ticketmaster setting up offices that look better than a playground to a child and benefits schemes becoming larger and larger, competing for a voice requires innovation, thought leadership and determination.
