What you will learn


As the world becomes increasing connected and digitised, a new generation of tech-savvy, ‘on-demand’ employees has emerged, challenging retailers to reflect on how they might optimise workforce productivity, collaboration and engagement.

As younger generations begin to enter the workforce, HR is responding not only to the intrinsically technological ways we learn and communicate, but also to some of the more significant principles of the modern workforce, including a focus on wellbeing. Unhappy employees are often less productive and can cost billions in lost revenue, so staff satisfaction levels need to be a top priority for retailers.

It is crucial that retailers adapt and tailor their HR function to be relevant for the business they work within - otherwise it will not have the desired effect and will not support the organisation’s overall strategy. The HR department must champion learning and development across all areas of the business.

This event will show delegates how they can create a workplace that enables employees to thrive. Join the UK’s top retailers to find out how HR are finding effective tools for the workplace, and what challenges they’re facing to implement them. 


This interactive event has been designed to allow a focused peer group of UK retail HR executives the opportunity discuss retail HR best practices in a relaxed environment.

Interactivity has been maximised during the conference sessions with two interactive panel discussions, Q&A opportunities after every speech, an interview session and the use of our popular live Twitter feed.

There will be plenty of time for networking during registration, lunch and coffee breaks. Solution providers will be on-hand to offer advice on HR strategy in the omnichannel marketplace.

What our delegates say
