During the event, James will delve into various topics, including how Katoni identifies upskilling and development opportunities for its staff, the mutual benefits reaped by both employees and the business through such initiatives, the positive impact on retention and company culture, and the potential for stronger partnerships between RGU, DYW, and local businesses to create better career opportunities for young individuals.
