We offer clients the best mix of leading-edge thinking, practical advice and high quality peer-group debate. Our management journal, The OE, is linked with our own internal development programme and we regularly host events to bring together our diverse network to discuss topical issues and share stories.
The theme of our next debate is how leaders can manage the people challenges of digitalisation.
Supermarket Giant Sainsbury’s acquired Digital Retail Leader Argos in September 2016. One year on, what has been the organisational impact of the acquisition and what were the people challenges to make it work? With Amazon stepping up the pressure with UK grocery deliveries, is Sainsbury’s digital transformation moving fast enough?
We are delighted that Ella Bennett, HR Director for Sainsbury’s Argos will lead our discussion by updating us on the digital journey so far and sharing her experience of the acquisition – particularly interesting from the perspective of the acquired party. Ella has significant experience leading transformational change and strategic HR initiatives. Prior to Sainsbury’s Argos, Ella was Group HR Director for Home Retail Group and has held board HR roles at Fujitsu.
