Major workplace benefits conference returns to the Midlands in May

Major workplace benefits conference returns to the Midlands in May

Midlands-based firms will get the chance to benefit from one of the UK’s leading workplace pensions and benefits events, which once again will take place on their doorstep in Birmingham.

Two conferences, Reward Live and Workplace Pensions Live, will run alongside each other at Edgbaston Cricket Ground on 11 and 12 May 2016.

Tailored specifically for HR managers from mid-sized businesses, Reward Live will provide practical tips to help employers build better benefits packages that really engage and motivate staff.  Sessions will cover the latest legislation and thinking on a range of workplace benefits, from healthcare and wellbeing, to flexible working and financial education.  

The line-up of inspiring keynote speakers includes Jonathan Trott, former England Test Cricketer, who will share his personal experiences of stress-related illness and Lucy Adams who was head of global HR at the BBC during one of the organisations most turbulent periods. 

Delegates will also get the chance to learn from the on-the-job experiences of HR practitioners at some of the UK’s leading firms including Tate and Lyle, Kingfisher and Virgin Media.

Running alongside Reward Live, sessions at Workplace Pensions Live will explore the latest developments in workplace pensions, and what constitutes value in pensions.

Rules and regulations around pensions have changed dramatically over the last year and with a possible Brexit and potential changes to tax relief, the uncertainty for employers, pensions providers and savers is set to continue.

The event will bring pensions professionals and trustees together to share experiences and to explore solutions to the challenges ahead.   

Delegates will hear perspectives and predictions from leading figures in pensions and insights from the wider business world, including notorious businessman and jewellery entrepreneur Gerald Ratner, a man who truly understands what ‘value’ means in the wider world.

Places at both conferences are free for qualifying HR and pensions professionals – if you are interested in attending please visit and for more information.
