This year's Talent in Logistics conference 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 23 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. 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."
