June O’Sullivan MBE, LEYF - how to keep your staff happy

Her talk was incredibly entertaining, with lots of stories from her own experience of setting up and running her own social enterprise. She revealed that she also hires for attitude, and then trains for skill, through assessment days.

June works hard to make sure her staff are kept happy, retaining staff long-term, by investing in their training, promoting from within the organisation, and by paying her staff the London living wage.
