Developing your people & development strategy

The introduction of the national living wage and the apprenticeship levy is driving increased focus on how employers maximise the investment they are making in their staff to result in tangible business benefits.

As a result, HR and learning and development teams need to demonstrate even more clearly how their people strategies will underpin their needs and provide the level of returns their businesses are seeking.
