Share this article...

UK Plc is about to head into the uncharted waters of Brexit, and employers are increasingly nervous about the journey ahead. So it seems an appropriate time for the hugely successful Jelf Employment Seminars to provide another guiding-light on some of the key employment issues of the day.

Our expert crew of keynote speakers for this important event includes:

  • Matt Jenkin will share his insights into the complex world of Employment Law.
  • The impact of an Ageing Workforce in the UK will be explored by Elliott Hurst.
  • Steve Herbert will provide a topical update on Employee Benefits issues, together with a review of the autumn Budget statement.

And the event will be chaired by the ever-popular Peter Matthews.

Our opulent and unique venue for this event is Trinity House in central London.  Trinity House overlooks both the Tower of London and The River Thames, and is the headquarters of an organisation that dates back to 1514.  The charity is perhaps best known for its role in managing lighthouses around the UK, and our delegates will be able to access the State Rooms of this grand venue, and enjoy its important collection of art and artefacts.  Trinity House is centrally located, and just a few minutes’ walk from many public transport links.

Registration, coffee and networking


Employee Benefits: “On the rocks?”      UK Plc is about to enter the uncharted waters of Brexit – but what does this mean for the world of Employment and Employee Benefits (EB)?  Steve will cast a weather-eye over topics as diverse as remote GP access for employees, workplace education and communications, the DWP Pensions Auto-Enrolment review, the Taylor Report, and a review of the key EB issues in the Chancellor’s 2017 Autumn Budget. Speaker:  Steve Herbert, Head of Benefits Strategy, Jelf Employee Benefits

The Ageing Workforce: “The impact of ageing and eldercare on corporate Britain”      By 2050 the number of 85 year olds globally will have increased 5 fold, 50 percent of the European population will be aged over 50, whilst today 1 in 3 UK employees are already aged over 50. Elliott Hurst will explore this issue in depth, and isolate what this may mean for employment trends, and what actions employers can take in building an age-friendly organisation.  Speaker: Elliott Hurst, Head of Proposition & Innovation, Mercer Marsh Benefits
