15 December 15:00 - 16:00DIGITAL EVENT

We see successful talent attraction as one of the most important components for successful growth and continuation of one's business. However, attracting the right competences, responding to the expectations of the new professionals, and keeping them in the organisation remain one of the biggest challenges in today's organisations.

Member or non-member, male, female, or other, take your coffee with you and join our digital afternoon talk with Fempack about the opportunities, challenges and misunderstandings in attracting new talent to packaging and other industrial sectors.

How easy it actually is to get in? And what are the obstacles that new labour face when entering these industries? Hear a discussion on these burning questions directly from both established professionals' and students' perspectives.

As usual, we invite you to draw inspiration and participate actively in the questions and comments part of this digital event! We are looking forward to connecting with you all for insights, networking, and fun!
