Workforce Planning Masterclass 

Date: Thursday 11th October
Location: Manchester city centre

This is the UK’s leading event focused on how to design, implement and manage shift patterns.

The event will be invaluable for anyone looking to:

• Boost productivity, improve customer service, eliminate overtime and reduce reliance on agency workers.

  • Use Annualised Hours and Demand-Led Rostering systems to replace ‘precarious’ forms of employment (e.g. zero hour contracts) with full-time secure roles.

• Protect shift workers’ health, improve their work-life balance and create appealing patterns that support recruitment and retention.

• Manage the impact of Brexit by increasing workforce flexibility and responsiveness.

• Maintain compliance with Working Time regulations, legislation such as the National Living Wage and ethical supplier audits.
