Network and Engage with The Wheel (Online Meeting)

This networking and information session is an opportunity to meet up with other community and voluntary organisations, share the good work you are doing and the challenges you have overcome, and learn what supports are available to you.

We will be joined by Elizabeth Bolger, our Director of People and Programmes, who will share some key insights of HR issues that impact our sector and current thinking on how we can get the right balance between the needs and wishes of our people and what’s good for our organisations as we return to the workplace.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will leave the session with greater awareness of:

  • the variety and quality of work being done by community and voluntary organisations, charities and social enterprises
  • the supports and services provided by The Wheel and other service providers
  • some key HR challenges facing our sector and the steps we can take to address them as we return to the workplace.
