Why would I invest in developing local talent?

Developing local talent by ‘Growing Our Own’ is a way in which businesses can contribute to the sustainable development of the region’s future workforce. It provides an opportunity for employers to mentor, support, and evaluate prospective employees for ‘best fits’ with their organisation’s ethos.

Developing local talent can help promote and raise the profile of your business. Investing in the early training and development of staff is recognised as a key point for retaining employees. This is an effective strategy for rural and regional businesses to get the best staff and keep them.
