Are we training people for their next job?

“What if we train people and they leave? What if we don’t, and they stay?”

This phrase is a terrible cliché, but it has some truth. So this week on the GoodPractice Podcast we’re digging into it to explore the relationship between recruitment and development.  Ross Garner and Owen Ferguson are joined by Radial Recruitment’s Susan Lindsay and CIPD’s David Hayden to discuss.
