Join us at our 2020 HR event for professionals in the fresh produce sector which this year will be delivered online. There will be a keynote and two other notable speakers from the world of HR talking about business resilience, sustainability and the future of the world of work.
Welcome and Introduction
Keynote Presentation - Organisational Resilience: the ABCs of Shock and ResponseHR teams and their organisations confront three major forces caused by global economic shocks - the residual impact of the global financial crisis leaving an environment of Austerity in which reducing cost is paramount; Brexit and Covid. Navigating strategically through these troubled times, and building organisational resilience to survive future shocks as well, requires another A,B,C as a response. This is firstly about Autonomy - helping people working in both knowledge and production roles to take more ownership and accountability for what they need to do. Secondly, Belonging - providing a broader horizon to focus on, and new opportunities to have everyone’s voice heard. And thirdly, Contribution - resigning jobs through new technologies and smarter thinking to provide more value to organisations and employees.

Managing Millennials and their demands for development and progression75% of managers feel they fulfil the role of mentor, but only a quarter (26%) of millennials agree”. Jacqui Green will share with us thoughts and recommendations on how businesses in our industry should be making their biggest priority equipping their managers and leaders with the skills and commitment to be great mentors to the millennial and Gen Z teams around them, whilst not missing the needs of the other generational cohorts in the process. In a new world of working from home and one to ones (with zoom as the third person), leaders have to recognise that, whilst the energy and dedication to do this feels like a burden or costly, by ignoring it they risk losing, or failing to attract, great talent.
