Welcome to the 3rd Annual People in Consumer Goods & Services

September 17th -18th, 2013 || InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta || Atlanta, GA

The consumer goods, consumer services and retail industries face unique challenges that can only be solved with strong leadership and bold choices.  Engaging your workforce, identifying and developing high potentials and succession management are just a few of the imperative components to building an exemplary team.  These industries cope with issues such as seasonal demand and high turnover rates and it is of the utmost importance for the modern HR professional to have a structured plan to deal with these challenges. A holistic human capital management strategy should provide the flexibility, speed, accuracy, and improved employee and consumer experience required to drive success in today’s market, particularly as we see human resources and operations converge in discipline and application.

The 2013 People in Consumer Goods & Services Summit will spark the minds of HR professionals within the consumer industry and arm them with useful tools that they can utilize in their own business planning initiatives. Industry experts will share their experiences within the areas of workforce planning, recruitment and retention, leadership development, diversity, and succession planning, among others, that can drive increased productivity and business excellence in the retail, consumer goods and consumer services marketplace.
