Last week Staffline Recruitment GB colleagues were invited to kick off 2022 'Starting Fast', with a 4-day Virtual Conference Experience.
With daily events streamed via a 'Virtual Reality Expo', members of the Leadership Team shared the Staffline Recruitment GB strategy for 2022 in a series of TV show style chats, interviews and panel discussions. Over the 4 days, delegates were invited to spend time exploring the Virtual Expo stalls where they were able to; engage with Avatars, explore presentations and watch short videos, in order to learn more about the businesses' 'How We Win Pillars'.
"We really would have loved to get you all together for a face-to-face show, but without being able to make this happen safely for us all, we really do think this is the next best thing. We wanted Starting Fast 2022 to look and feel a little different to our standard teams calls and slide show presentations.’
Frank Atkinson, Group MD Staffline GB.
In addition to the Expo Stalls, there were 2 Main Stage ‘Shows’ streamed live twice a day to allow for a ‘live Q&A’ with the shows panellists & Staffline Recruitment GB Leadership Team, via the programmes chat function.
Day one burst into action with the three anchor presenters to the ‘Starting Fast’ event, Sarah Taylor (People Director), Shan Saba (Director, Brightwork Staffline) and Olivia Harker (Development & Engagement Coordinator) setting the scene for an energetic and fun start to the week ahead.
