Employee Wellbeing and Engagement Take Centre Stage at Online Logistics Conference
Putting people at the heart of logistics operations will be the focus of this year’s Talent in Logistics conference which will take place entirely online.
“The success of the logistics sector relies heavily on its
talented people during these challenging times,” says Ruth Edwards, Business
Development Director for Talent in Logistics. “And when leaders engage with
employees, this is shown to increase productivity, customer satisfaction, and
safety while reducing absence levels and attrition.”
“This is a period of change and priorities are shifting for
many organisations,” she continues. “That’s why we have curated the agenda to
focus on the areas that will provide the most guidance and inspiration to
employers for the uncertain road ahead.”
The one-day digital conference, which takes place on 23rd
September 2020, will be delivered remotely by a series of speakers, all
experts in the field of employee engagement.
Keynote speaker Liggy Webb, an award winning author,
presenter and consultant who specialises in the area of behavioural skills and
human resilience, will lead a session titled ‘How to lead a culture of
wellbeing and resilience’ that will help attendees understand more about
stress-related burnout, the value of investing in employee wellbeing and how to
help people through uncertain times.
Talent in Logistics will present the findings of recent
research into HGV Driver engagement, carried out in collaboration with Pertemps
Driving Division. This will reveal how HGV drivers feel about their role,
employers, and career prospects, as well as their suggestions for solving the
skills shortages in the sector.
Other sessions will cover topics such as the role of
gathering employee feedback, managing and engaging a remote workforce,
corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy and lessons learned from
Covid-19 around why it is so important to invest in people.
“It’s crucial now more than ever that we come together as a
sector,” says Ruth. “Our planned calendar of 2020 conferences has evolved
online to provide an alternative that will continue to help logistics
employers, and their valuable people, to succeed in the long term.”
The conference will take place across a full day. All registrants will receive recordings of each session, accompanied by a range of additional, useful resources, ensuring maximum value even for those who cannot watch the whole event live. This content will be available exclusively to registered conference attendees.
