Talent in Sustainability: Addressing the Skills Gap in Hong KongHosted by the Sustainability Committee
AustCham’s Sustainability Committee is thrilled to welcome guest speaker, Paddy Balfour, Executive Director, Asia of Acre to discuss the topic of Talent in Sustainability: Addressing the Skills Gap in Hong Kong
Companies in Hong Kong are urgently seeking employees who can help them meet their sustainability goals, but finding the right skill set can be a challenge. To succeed in today's fast-paced and dynamic environment, employers need to adopt sustainable recruitment strategies that go beyond just filling open positions. This requires a shift in mindset from the conventional approach of hiring for skills and qualifications, to hiring for values and cultural fit.
Join us to learn more about:
- Ongoing developments in hiring
- Talent in Hong Kong
- Tools for organisations to attract and retain talent
- Pay increases in the ESG space
This is a Member-only event. Registration is free.
