Presented in the framework of the Experience Carrière event

Labour is a subject that rhymes with issues for retailers in these times, which are all the more troubled by inflation, the rebound of the pandemic, and the turmoil of the Russian invasion in Ukraine. Several solutions are often proposed to promote the retention and attraction of workers, but it is also possible to think differently by addressing topics that are sometimes at the root of the problem: health, well-being at work, but also, the adaptation of the business model to new generational challenges: wellness, social responsibility are part of these interests.

How can we attract this new workforce if we don’t have the right model? Can the adoption of social and environmental principles help develop the human wealth of an organization?

Promoting employee retention also requires the adoption of key measures in the area of health and well-being in the workplace: the impact of the pandemic on mental health is forcing discussions within organizations. According to Laval University, more than half of workers will be living with mental health problems in 2022, which increases the need for employees to feel good about their company. These are all questions that need to be answered and that will help move the workforce situation we are currently experiencing forward.

At this discussion table, you will be in the spotlight. Come share, listen, propose and debate potential solutions. Be inspired by what’s new today, working together to move our industry forward.

Discussions with participants will focus on the following three discussion topics:

  • Occupational health and wellness
  • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
  • The place of youth and the motivations of new generations
