Register for HR’s New Frontier: Mastering ESG to Recruit and Retain Exceptional Talent

The Challenge

Today’s workers have more control over their careers than ever before. They’re more selective over who they work for, the duration of the tenure, and what kind of work they do to fulfil themselves. The emerging workforce also demonstrates an unwavering dedication to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG). As a result, the role of CHROs and HR teams has expanded to include a focus on ESG performance in the hopes of attracting and retaining talent (especially those who are highly conscious of who they’re dedicating their skills and time to). How can HR departments establish a strong connection between ESG initiatives and the values and mission of the organisation to ensure it appeals to the cream of the talent crop?

What will we explore?

• What are the expanded responsibilities of CHROs and HR teams in relation to ESG performance?
• What potential challenges and roadblocks might HR departments face when integrating ESG into talent acquisition and retention strategies, and how can these be overcome?
• How to demonstrate to employees HR’s commitment to ESG performance by means of tracking clear goals and metrics over time?
• How can HR leaders stay updated on evolving ESG trends, industry standards, and best practices to ensure continuous improvement and learning in talent management?

What outcomes can I expect?

• Identify specific actions HR teams can take to support and drive ESG initiatives within the organisation.
• Access to methods that foster transparency and effective communication regarding ESG initiatives to enhance employee satisfaction and engagement.
• Identifying ways to attract and engage candidates who place importance on sustainability, social responsibility, and ethical practices, and establish the organisation’s reputation based on these principles.
• Knowing how and where to foster partnerships outside the organisation to drive ESG initiatives to attract and retain top talent.
