INDUSTRY PANEL: The Workforce: From Liability to Asset

Hiring, training and retention can be the biggest weaknesses—and expenses—of a retail brand. But done right, it can also be its biggest tool for profitability and operational success. This session will tackle both regulatory labor issues such as minimum wage and overtime as well as innovative solutions to reduce employee turnover, attract the best team members and even enhance community relations.

INDUSTRY PANEL: Next Gen Leaders Forum – Part 1: Industry Icon Panel Discussion

Outlook’s Next Gen Leaders Forum is a rare opportunity for next generation leaders to interact and learn from some of convenience industry’s most respected and veteran business-leaders. The Forum is split into two segments to maximize participant interaction with a selection of industry icons who have made a difference in their organization and in the industry. Following icon presentations in Part 1, participants identify which industry leader they wish to spend an hour with in roundtable discussion the following day. The individual small group discussions with icon will allow inquiring minds to candidly talk about issues, ask specific questions, and make a direct person-to-person connection with leaders of the convenience store community.
