Employee Benefits Seminar - Cardiff March 2018

The recent years of political turmoil have left many businesses concerned and confused about what the future may hold. Employers in all sectors are therefore seeking to make changes to keep their organisation amongst the top teams in the years ahead. But on which areas should employers focus, and how to kick-off such a process?

To help answer this question we are delighted to announce our latest squad of highly knowledgeable speakers. The team will be captained by the ever-popular Peter Matthews, and includes the following key team members and important topics:

  • An update on all the key Employment Law changes from Matt Jenkin
  • A look at the many benefits of Meaningful Work with Katie Bailey
  • Insights into the UK’s rather worrying Workforce Crisis by topic expert Julia Howes
  • A review of the complex and changing world of Employee Benefits with Steve Herbert

And of course we have another excellent venue for our delegates to enjoy! This time we are at the superb Cardiff City Stadium. The stadium is the home to Cardiff City Football Club, and also the home of the Welsh National Football Team. A complimentary stadium tour is available to all our delegates after the seminar concludes. The venue offers delegates free car parking and is accessible via public transport links.

Employee Benefits: "2018: Time to kick-off?”

The workplace is changing, and employee benefit offerings may also need to alter to remain relevant to both employers and employees. Steve will look at some key employment topics including: working hours; remote GP access for employees; workplace mental health; and the recent DWP review of Pensions Auto-Enrolment. An informative, and hopefully fun, session.

Workforce Crisis: “We cannot recruit our way out of the skills shortage crisis”

Mercer’s research on the workforce implications of Brexit found that regardless of migration levels, the UK faces an unprecedented shortage of workers, skills and leaders. This will impact all industries and organisations. Recent unemployment and vacancy statistics indicate that we are already feeling the impacts, yet the Talent Trends research shows that many executives are focused on recruitment as the only solution. This won’t be sufficient, and strategic HR functions must think ahead. This session will share Mercer's research and suggested solutions for managing the skills crisis.
Julia Howes, Principal, Strategic Workforce Planning & Analytics Lead, Mercer

Meaningful Work: “Meaningful or Meaningless?”

What makes work meaningful or meaningless? We all want our work to be meaningful, yet all too often it fails to reach this ideal. In this talk, Katie sheds light on what it is about some jobs that makes them meaningful, and what organisations do that gets in the way of this. She explains the core features of a meaningfulness ecosystem that can enable and empower employees to find their own personal meaning in their work.
Katie Bailey, Professor of Work and Employment, King's Business School

Employment Law: “It’s not just a bit of banter”

With the fallout from the sacking of the England Women’s Football team coach still being felt, and with allegations of sexual harassment being reported by the press on an almost daily basis, Matt will ask why we have seen the increase in bullying and harassment cases. And also what practical steps an employer can take to help protect themselves and their employees going forward. Matt will also provide an update on other topical employment law issues such as the latest landmark holiday pay case. And whether we will actually see any changes to employment law in light of the Taylor Report, shared parental pay, and the increase in tribunal claims following the abolition of fees.
