Stuart Fairbairn from Spectrum for Arcadia was the second of our expert speakers at our recent Northampton Peak Planning Breakfast Event, talking about Spectrums peak hiring strategy.
Last week David McIntosh discussed the topic of 'People Planning' for peak period at our Peak Planning Breakfast Networking Event. The first half of David’s career was spent working in retail operations for companies such as Allied Domecq and United Biscuits. More recently David’s roles have been in people development and performance, leading to his current position as Organisational Development Manager at Arrow XL, a company that has recently undergone significant change and growth.
Having previously worked in the Logistics industry for 10 years, I know that ‘peak’ trading is a period that is talked about throughout the year with a mixture of dread and excitement.
