Businesses support Inclusive Worcestershire programme

Worcestershire businesses have attended a series of events across the last few months to help develop their future workforce inclusively.

The Worcestershire Growth Hub and Worcestershire County Council have delivered four in a new series of events designed to help businesses with their people.

The events have been designed to help local businesses understand how they can embrace inclusive hiring practices to overcome the skills challenges many businesses are facing. Inclusive hiring practices are also a growing opportunity for businesses as they embrace those with additional needs into their organisation to ensure the business can be more successful, and provide valuable opportunities to the wider community.

The recent event in January saw over 40 businesses in attendance to discuss the opportunities around hiring and developing diverse talent. The next event in the series is taking place in March and will be focused on workplace wellbeing.

Businesses who missed out on these events can still access support around their workforce development via the team at the Worcestershire Growth Hub.
