Retail 2020 – The journey to better jobs is the BRC’s new flagship event to provide a forum for all retail professionals concerned with talent, productivity and engagement. Providing the opportunity to understand the challenges the industry faces, as well as sharing thoughts and ideas to help anticipate how individual businesses and retail as an industry should react.
The changing nature of the consumer and channels to shop are forcing retailers to fundamentally rethink their structures. Coupled with new regulatory pressures and an evolving political landscape resulting in cost bases rising, the latest information is essential to operate ahead of the curve. The BRC Retail 2020 project directly considers these issues and defines a vision for the future of jobs in the industry – a vision for better jobs. Jobs that are more productive, more engaging, more highly paid and with more opportunities to progress.
At this event, we will be launching ‘The Changing Face of Retail’; a new film project by BRC and ITN Productions, which will investigate the future of British shopping. The programme will build on the ‘Retail 2020’ reports and explore what changes in the way people shop will mean for businesses, staff and consumers, and analyse the impact of Brexit on the retail industry in the coming years.
The film will be fronted by national newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky and will be a long-form current affairs-style programme, drawing upon ITN’s 60-year heritage. Here's a teaser...
