Event details

ABTA’s new in-depth training day will provide practical guidance on managing travel workforces with a focus on employment law, workforce wellbeing and strategies for retaining talent. 

Attend to understand your legal responsibilities as a travel employer and how you can retain a happy workforce.

About the event

The travel industry has seen huge changes and instability in the industry workforce from staff shortages to flexible working as a result of the pandemic and Brexit.

ABTA’s training day will support wider industry discussion around recruitment and retention in the travel industry and provide a deep-dive into practical solutions around the current challenges facing the industry, including guidance on common employment law issues. 

To recruit and retain staff it’s vital that as a travel employer you keep up to date with changes to ensure you are compliant with legislation.

With many organisations offering flexible working and the 4 day week being trialled, attend this training day to find out what’s key to employees and the strategies that you can adopt to provide benefits to staff within your budget.

Ensure you have effective policies in place to create a diverse and equal workforce and promote good mental health and wellbeing amongst your staff.

Understand your legal responsibilities for holiday pay commission, working hours and equality and diversity in the workplace.
