We are pleased to launch our HR & Legal Forum with a focus on skills and workforce. Join ADS HR Director Beth Henson and ADS Group Legal Director and Company Secretary, Christina Smith to discuss the challenges our members are facing.  

We will touch on current trends, what ADS is doing from a Policy perspective and discuss ways we can make global mobility work for us. We will also look at benefit & reward - acknowledging that retaining our current workforce is a key priority during this skills drought.

We thank Gallagher UK for hosting this first event and Vialto Partners, who specialise in supporting organisations with all aspects of moving people internationally, will be speaking about Global Mobility. They have collated some insights on UK immigration in advance of the meeting which you can view here.
