The Club’s autumn 2019 event was titled “How to keep them happy: Retaining your young, diverse talent in 2020 and beyond”. We’d like to thank everyone who attended and contributed to the discussion – and to Trainline, who kindly hosted the event at their Holborn HQ.

As always, the debate was lively – with our Club Members demonstrating their typical frankness about their challenges, and generosity with sharing solutions. We are so proud to have built such a warm and collaborative community of like-minded HR professionals. Guests included David Smith (Trainline), Donna Taberer (BBC), Ben Carpenter (Google), Grace Jeffrey (NHS Leadership Academy), Kirsten Doherty (Accenture), Liz Liddle (Arriva), Rebecca Minter (Cancer Research UK), Marco Bardino (Enterprise Rent-A-Car), Rachel Saxon (National Theatre), Lee Curtis (Selfridges), Lorna East (Hearst UK) and Cherry Cooke (Experian).

Graduate Fog Employers Club Members can download the White Paper Report capturing the entirety of the evening’s discussion – including a long list of solutions ideas for improving your retention rates among young hires. Thank you again to everyone who helped to make this such a valuable session – and see you at our Members’ Winter Lunch in January 2020!
