Herefordshire can 'lead Britain out of recession', says employer
HEREFORDSHIRE can show Britain a way out of recession being in “pole position” to attract new companies and career opportunities, a leading local recruiter says this week.
Stuart Blake of Rotherwas based DRS was speaking ahead of the major business seminar his company is next week targeting the development, attraction and retention of talent in the county.
“Whilst other parts of the country continue to suffer, with little chance of improvement, Herefordshire is in pole position to benefit from new companies coming to the county offering new, varied and inspirational career opportunities,” said Mr Blake.
“We have now to ensure that solid building blocks are in place in order that individuals and companies can maximise their potential - that will take planning and innovation as well as damned hard work,” he said .
DRS are hosting the seminar - backed by allpay, Kidwells, Hereford Futures and the Hereford Times - at Kidwells, Rotherwas next Thursday (Oct 18).
“This should be every responsible employers focus, it is vital is for each employer to be in a position to attract the best talent to the county and to retain our talent in the area - keeping the Herefordshire pound in Hereford - I hope that all employers take the opportunity to join us on the 18th October,” said Mr Blake.
“There are challenges around training and development that we all need to share. As we come out of the longest recession in my memory, it would be foolhardy if companies do not make the most of a change in market conditions because of a lack of resource planning and resource management,” he said.
