About this session:< /b>

The multi award winning Chemical Business Associ ation (CBA) is celebrating its 100th Anniversary and is the leading organi sation representing the UK chemical supply chain.

To function effectively\, the chemical industry requires people w ith diverse skills and knowledge. It is increasingly recognised however\, that a well-motivated workforce with a positive and ‘\;can do’\; attitude is equally as important and is arguably even more so. However\, finding such talent can prove difficult in current times and is likely to become increasingly challenging.

While th ere is not an issue in the wider chemical supply chain at this time\, thre e particular considerations must be made that are likely to adversely affe ct this in the future this without immediate action: the imminent retireme nt of experienced employees\; perceived skills shortages among the generat ion to replace retirees\; and a general lack of awareness of the opportuni ties that exist combined with a lack of motivation to join it due to negat ive perceptions and misunderstandings of what the chemical industry actual ly is.

Day two’\;s CBA Big Debate wi ll consider the challenges and look at how the chemical industry can ensur e a sustainable and highly effective future workforce.
