Drapers Next Generation: The importance of recognising talent

We’re pleased and excited to be sponsoring Drapers’ 30 under 30 in 2014.

As a business we understand how important it is to recognise the next generation of talent.

Our people are central to our business, so it is vital that we enable every one of them to develop in their roles. When new opportunities are available at Matalan, we always consider our internal talent first but we also understand that new talent brings new ideas and fresh ways of thinking, so it is important that we keep a good balance. Matalan has a significant amount of under 30s - these are our future leaders so we focus on coaching and nurturing them by giving them new challenges, experiences and an environment in which to grow and be creative.

This year’s 30 under 30 highlights what amazing people we have in our industry and the importance of recognising their achievements, to ensure their drive and determination never goes unnoticed.

  • Laura Oxton head office HR manager, Matalan
