This post provides a brief overview of the subject matter we cover and links to each event and webinar. You can find out more about our 2018 events and webinars here.

Themes for our upcoming events and webinars include:

  • Reducing labour costs, boosting productivity, eliminating overtime and minimising reliance on agency workers
  • Creating more flexible resourcing models that respond to demand volatility, seasonality and help you remain competitive in uncertain times
  • Improving customer service through a more responsive and efficient workforce
  • Understanding how improved ways of working can tackle the threat posed by skills shortages and help attract ‘generation Y’ employees into the workforce.
  • Maintaining compliance with Working Time regulations, legislation such as the National Living Wage and ethical supplier audits

If you’re new to workforce planning, have limited time available, or would like to gain an insight into the nature of our 1-day events, we would recommend registering for one of our webinars.

Places for our webinars are free but limited, so register today to be involved.

Our 1-day events provide an opportunity to gain more detailed insight into the best practice approach to designing, planning and maintaining optimal shift patterns and rosters.

Hosted by experts in workforce planning and management, delegates will gain an overview of approaches that support effective shift design and management; such as Demand-Led Rostering, Lean Employee Resourcing and Annualised Hours.

The detail will be brought to life through engaging case studies on real world implementation. Other sessions will include practical exercises on shift pattern planning and how technology can be used to support the process.

The events section of our website will be updated with additional events and webinars as they are confirmed.
