What you will learn


Retail HR teams are faced with unprecedented challenges due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, being resourced with the right information both legally and strategically will help all retailers get robust processes in place. The annual Retail HR Summit will help all Retail HR teams on their journey to implement the strategies needed at this time of crisis.

Managing a workforce in a pandemic is not something any of us thought we'd have to contend with in 2020. Protecting the culture of your organisation, supporting their wellbeing, and creating a workforce that can sustain energy and resilience is of the utmost importance. Coronavirus continues to present challenges for HR professionals, including how to manage sick pay, planning for business continuity and ensuring the health and safety of staff.

During this time of great upheaval, people leaders have an opportunity to redesign the way their organisations work. Business culture is a powerful enabler and never is this more apparent than right now. The way we lead, communicate, support and collaborate has a critical bearing on how successfully our organisations are able to pivot to our “new normal”.

HR teams need to adapt to help their organisations manage a new hybrid, disparate workforce as efficiently and effectively as possible.

This online event is ideal for business leaders, HR professionals and managers in retail and related industry sectors, who want to understand the impact of the changing workplace. If you're concerned about how well your organisation is equipped for change and want pragmatic steps to take away with you, this event is for you.
