The 9th Annual Retail HR Summit - 5th October 2017

Our annual retail HR conference brings together HR, reward and benefit professionals to discuss the latest research insights and the most innovative approaches to improving performance through employee engagement.

To ensure high levels of employee engagement, employers need to make sure that an employee's wellbeing is at the centre of the modern retail model. Retail lags behind many other industries when it comes to employee benefits and as employers continue to fight for the attention of Generation Y, incentives, benefits and wellbeing will become more and more important. What can retailers do to look after their employees better and increase staff loyalty now and in the future?

Digital is also helping HR departments to become more employee-centric. This evolution of HR is of significant importance to a business' overall digital transformation and is allowing HR departments to work and function in a more efficient way to support the changing business needs. But can HR adapt to the new reality and become a business driver or it is time for HR to move back to become an administrative, behind-the-scenes function?

Retailers should also be prepared for the National Living Wage by now but if they aren't, they should act quickly to ensure they are compliant, and that the financial impact of the changes are understood. Employers who are able to quickly adapt to these changes and embrace them are most likely to thrive as they will be best positioned to attract and retain talent.
Given the continued talent challenges in the market, being the owner of the recruitment brand and thinking like a marketing director to ensure the organisation can attract and hire the required talent, is essential. Employers today need to ensure they're investing in their employer brand so the right talent can find them.

Attend this interactive, retailer-led conference to find out how to:

  • Engage employees at all levels - ensure brand and consumer culture is embedded into your organisation
  • Attract and retain top talent - valuing your employees
  • Understand the latest digital technology and its impact on HR
  • Bring your HR strategy to life - be more than just a support function
  • Improve business success though an engaged workforce
  • Be prepared and compliant with the National Living Wage
  • Obtain business backing for your employee wellbeing programme

Attend The Retail Bulletin's 9th Annual Retail HR Summit 2017 to learn about challenges faced, discuss and interact with your peers at this high quality, one day event. This is your opportunity to learn best practice methods, retain and develop your staff and attract the best talent, become a truly strategic HR function that embeds its people policies and procedures with long-term business priorities.
