Labour, productivity and retention: the great balancing act

1 November 2023, London 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm BST
In partnership

Dinner Location: Victorian Bath House

Good evening…

And welcome to this Meet the Boss event in partnership with Harri.

Hospitality’s high turnover ultimately results in both the guest and employee experience suffering. So, what can you as a leader do about this?

Join Harri and a select group of fellow hospitality industry leaders for an exclusive three-course dinner in the opulent Victorian Bath House - a Grade II listed building hidden right in the heart of the City of London. Learn how you can utilise technology and data to improve employee well-being and retention, increase productivity and reduce costs.

Bon Appetit!
