Open Recruiting – Removing Barriers to Recruitment

Open Recruitment employers provide opportunities to people from all kinds of backgrounds to contribute to the success of their organisation.

This workshop introduces you to ‘Open Recruitment’ covering through the use of case studies and interactive sessions how you can create a happier, healthier and more successful work environment.


In today’s labour market, there are significant populations who could be working – whether they are carers or care leavers, young people or the older generation, people with previous convictions, people with disabilities and single parents. Open recruitment involves removing barriers to employment and welcoming such groups. In doing so, you can create happier, healthier and more successful working environments.

What will the workshop cover? This workshop includes case studies, interactive sessions and the opportunity to start building your own action plan.

Why should I attend? This workshop supports you to:

  • Resolve skills shortages and reduce recruitment costs
  • Increase worker engagement and staff retention
  • Improve client relationships
  • Demonstrate social responsibility and enhance your corporate reputation

Who is this workshop designed for? This workshop is designed for HR, recruitment and operations professionals  for both employers and labour providers. We recommend that both labour users and labour providers attend together to encourage a partnership approach in designing and implementing effective open recruitment strategies.
