Local Recruiters Take Part in ‘Value of Experience’ Conference

Cummins Mellor Group Chairman Richard Mellor and Operations Manager June Crossley together with over 50 years’ experience in the recruitment industry presented at ‘The Value of Experience’ Conference in Preston on 25th April 2017.

The event was sparked by research undertaken by the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership (LEP) which highlighted the ageing workforce in Lancashire and the need for employers to value the experience that older workers can bring to a business.

The conference, held at Venue 53, Preston, was based around the newly published DWP strategy Fuller Working Lives: A Partnership Approach, giving an insight into some of the underpinning research and enabling employers to access and share best practice in retaining, retraining and recruiting older workers.

Richard, who founded the Cummins Mellor Group in 1990 and June who has been with the business since 1993, presented to an audience of representatives from fellow Lancashire Businesses, promoting and sharing best practice in retaining older workers.

Commenting on the event, Richard Mellor said; “June and I were thrilled to be asked to present at this event. As recruiters ourselves, we’re passionate about employment and sharing our vast knowledge acquired during careers in recruitment, which collectively span over 50 years. June has worked at the Cummins Mellor Group for over 20 years and the added value she has provided over those years is immense. I would recommend any employer to strive to retain older workers, the skills, experience and knowledge they bring to a business is invaluable”

Additional presentations on the day discussed retraining on apprenticeship reforms, including the levy, and the retraining of older workers through apprenticeship provision, as well as sharing best practice in recruiting older workers, highlighting the support available through European Social Funds to support recruitment.
