CIoS LEP, Cornwall Chamber of Commerce and the Federation of Small Business (FSB) recognise that we need to guide business owners of all sizes, by building confidence when recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce and how employment for all can make businesses more profitable.
The event will be a great opportunity to meet http://www.ciogrowthhub.com
likeminded businesses and skills providers, including Job Centre Plus, and the new Skills Access Hub team as part of www.ciogrowthhub.com
Whilst Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly are leading on the inclusive growth agenda, we know we can only tackle these long term issues affecting growth in our region by working in collaboration.
