One of the biggest pain points of mid-sized Australian companies, is attracting and maintaining the right people for the job. This month we kick off a series of articles that talk to this challenge. We discuss the strategies to keep smart staff challenged, with a look at how the Brennan IT’s People & Culture team tackle it. We have also shared an article aboout the impact that flexible working conditions can have on staff satisfaction. This series will be continued over the next few months.
Additionally, we include some resources from our business partners, with a focus on security.
