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 Edwards. “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.

Conference tickets are available now for £50+VAT (usual price £125+VAT).  To register, visit www.talentinlogistics.co.uk. Or for more information, call 01952 520216 or email talentinlogistics@captib.co.uk
