Millennials have professionally come of age and are offering volumes of skills, character and experience to the business community. Yet with 47% of telecommunications professionals over the age of 50 (The Engineers Survey, 2018) and still only 28% of the digital workforce under the age of 35 (Tech Nation, 2018), many companies remain unsure how to shape their business culture to attract and retain the best emerging talent. The challenge is even harder if you are in a scaling business.
What can you do to compete in this highly competitive job market to ensure you secure the next generation of talent needed for your business’ success?
At this event millennials will share what drives their employment decision-making and #MondayMotivation, and experienced recruiters will outline what has worked when helping firms access young high flyers. We will explore how the next generation of engineers and business leaders see the future in terms of funding, team building, commercials, engineering management, international operations and more.
This event will feature an opening talk by Irene Graham, CEO of the ScaleUp Institute who will provide an overview of the issues to be addressed. This will be followed by an interactive panel session which includes:
- Rajani Rao, Senior Engineer, u-blox
- Collette Johnson, VP Marketing, GeoSpock
- Helena Berry, Marketing Executive, Cambridge Enterprise
Starting at 5.30pm, with the session starting at 18:00, this informal event will conclude with further networking over drinks and refreshments.
