The End of Furlough - Safeguard Cash and Retain Critical Talent

October 13 at 09:15 | Webinar

Brought to you by our partners Informed Funding (iF), this webinar is designed to support business leaders who are looking to safeguard cash and critical talent as the Furlough Scheme comes to an end. For many sectors, demand remains weak and uncertain, making the prospect of taking on any further debt irresponsible. The need to hold onto limited cash reserves remains paramount. However, most astute senior leaders recognise that without critical talent, the business may not be in a position to capitalise on future opportunities.

Attend this webinar as Informed Funding helps Directors map the tools and tactics at their disposal to reduce operating costs, hold onto cash and retain critical talent. We’re pleased to welcome Richard Hare and Julia Terry from Peopletime who specialise in HR and employment law for SMEs. 

Spaces are limited, book your spot today. 

9:15 am - 11 am
