    Brexit: Ask the Expert - The new version of the Political Declaration
    William Bain Recorded: Nov 27 2018 40 mins
    Join us for our latest Brexit Webinar on Tuesday 27 November at 11am.

    After Sunday’s European Council summit, there will be finalised texts on both the UK’s exit arrangements, proposed Brexit transition (in the Withdrawal Agreement), and the signpost of the future trading relationship between the UK and EU (in the Political Declaration).

    Our Brexit policy lead William Bain will take you through what is in the new version of the Political Declaration, substantially changed in the last week, and what it could mean for your business in doing trade with the rest of Europe.

    We will also provide an outline of how the deal would affect the movement of goods between GB and NI, and the latest Brexit timeline of events and potential next scenarios on approving the deal, no deal, or other options as attention shifts back to Westminster for the critical few weeks ahead.

    Preparing for a No Deal Brexit

    A No Deal Brexit is looking increasingly likely and we now need to prepare for a much sharper rupture from existing rules and trading terms post withdrawal March 2019.

    This webinar will enable you to put your questions to and gain insight from our Brexit expert, William Bain, on contingencies retailers may want to develop as we near the exit deadline without a clear deal in place.

    It will cover key issues including staffing, transit of goods, customs and regulatory checks processes, taxation and duties, data, regulatory authorisations and permits, and the integrity and efficiency of supply or sourcing chains.

  • BRC & PwC Webinar: Why is Retail Productivity such a Hot topic?
    BRC & PwC Webinar: Why is Retail Productivity such a Hot topic?
    Lorna Ward, Retail Partner, PwC & Rachel Lund, Head of Retail Insights & Analytics, BRC Recorded: May 2 2018 37 mins
    Productivity in retail is hot right now, but often thought about with a one dimensional, cost savings lens. In fact, better results tend to be achieved when everyone in the value chain has visibility of problems in order to develop collaborative solutions.

    BRC/KRONOS Webinar - Trust, Transparency & Respect: Building Employee Engagement
    Operating Model Consultant, Co-op | Retail Industry Principal, Kronos | Insights & Analytics, BRC Recorded: Apr 17 2018 47 mins
    In this webinar we share the data and analysis from our research into employee engagement in retail, outlining some of the key challenges and some innovative solutions that have been implemented.

    Improving employee engagement is high up the agenda of senior management in retail.
    Employees who are motivated and more able to fulfill their potential are also more productive. With margins under ever increasing pressure, facilitating productivity gains has never been more crucial. However, improving engagement can be complicated and requires an in-depth understanding of some of the underlying issues holding engagement back.
  • BRC & PwC Webinar: National Minimum Wage Regulations: Are You Compliant?
    BRC & PwC Webinar: National Minimum Wage Regulations: Are You Compliant?
    John Harding, Partner at PwC; Emily Webster, Senior Manager at PwC; Fionnuala Horrocks-Burns, Policy Advisor at BRC Recorded: Feb 28 2018 46 mins
    The retail industry is committed to complying with the National Minimum Wage (NMW) regulations. But we know that the regulations are complex and understanding how they work in practice can be difficult.

    Falling foul of the regulations can result in:
    Repayments for up to 6 years (including current and ex-employees) increased to reflect the prevailing NMW rates; penalties of up to 200% of the underpayments identified; and public naming and shaming by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.
    It is not easy to spot where and why breaches can occur, or how to remedy them. PwC have a specialist team who have a great deal of experience in assisting retailers to identify and manage potential compliance risks around NMW. This is based on our understanding of the technical aspects of the regulations and also our practical experience of the approach taken by HMRC when they perform their audits.
    The webinar that we are running in February will take you through what is involved in a NMW audit and the top areas that HMRC will focus on during an audit. We will suggest some immediate actions and take questions.
