TOPIC STREAMS

Employee Engagement in the New World of Work

There has been a seismic shift in the way that we work over the last two years and many of these strategies are here to stay. This stream will highlight what the future of employee engagement looks like.

The Future of Employee Engagement

Our people are our biggest asset, so it’s crucial that we make sure that ‘work’ is a place that provides the experiences that will enable our people to thrive.

Effective Strategies for Employee Engagement

It’s so important to review and revise employee engagement strategies, so join this stream for innovative ideas relating to how to keep your people engaged.

Communication and Collaboration in the Modern Workplace

Communication and collaboration is increasingly taking centre stage in the quest for organisations to achieve higher and sustainable levels of employee engagement and productivity, particularly when employees are working remotely.

Wellbeing, Diversity & Inclusion

Probably the most crucial elements when it comes to employee engagement – join us to discover how to create a truly diverse, inclusive workplace where wellbeing takes centre stage.

Recruitment, Reward and Talent Retention

The great resignation has only highlighted the need to implement successful recruitment, reward and talent retention strategies. Join us to discover how to recruit the best talent and keep them engaged with your organisation.

Can Employee Experience Provide Competitive Advantage?

Our people are fast becoming the only way you will ever achieve a competitive advantage as, when we unlock the potential of our employees, we can drive customer experience to world class levels. Employees become our competitive advantage when they feel so engaged that they go above and beyond. Join this stream to discover how to unlock the potential of your employees.

Employee Engagement Strategy and Leadership

Employee engagement and productivity can only be achieved if the correct strategies are in place and we have inspirational role model leaders to effect and implement those strategies to move the organisation forward in an age of uncertainty and disruption.

Jill Scott

Jill Scott

Women's Euro 2022 Champion, Queen of the Jungle & Soccer Aid Captain

One of England's most decorated players, Jill Scott is one of the few Lionesses to have surpassed 150 caps. After featuring at nine major tournaments, she got a winners' medal as part of the team who won EURO 2022 on home soil.

An infectious character off the pitch, and a player for the big occasion on it, the influential midfielder stepped up to the plate whenever her country needed her most. Her England career was punctuated with some key strikes – the winner against Netherlands in the EURO 2009 semi-final, the equaliser against Belgium in EURO 2017 qualifying, and the finish in the 3-0 win over Wales which sealed England’s place at France 2019.

Jill began her career with her hometown Sunderland, before spending seven years at Everton and then joining City in 2013. She later had loan spells back at Everton and Aston Villa. She won her hundredth cap against Australia in 2015, before clocking up another fifty over the following six seasons. When Jill started the 3-0 win over Cameroon at France 2019, it was her eighteenth appearance at a World Cup final, the most of any England player in history. Jill retired from football as the second-highest capped player. During her time in the game, she won every domestic honour, including the Women's Super League title with City, and four women's FA Cups. Jill was voted FA Players' Player of the Year, FA International Player of the Year, and was appointed an MBE for services to women's football.

She also entered the jungle and was crowned the winner of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

Nikki Humphrey

Nikki Humphrey

Virgin Group Chief People Officer
Hi! I’m the Chief People Officer for the Virgin Group, Board Director of Virgin Hotels, and trustee of Virgin Unite. Creating workplaces where people find their full potential and feel like they truly belong is my greatest passion.

Joining the Virgin Family has been one of the most rewarding career moves I’ve made. Following board-level experience in retail, banking, insurance, asset management, media, manufacturing, and engineering, I joined Virgin Atlantic as Chief People Officer and was immediately impressed by how forward-thinking, people-first and purpose-driven the brand was. Richard Branson has always said that if you take care of your employees, they’ll take care of your business – and it’s incredible to see how this ethos filters across the Virgin family, covering five different sectors and continents.

Over the years, I’ve seen how people (including myself) thrive in environments where human connection, inclusion, ambition and progress sit at the heart of the business. I’ve also realised there is nothing more motivating than unlocking the potential of individuals, teams and businesses.
