The Conference is on a Sunday, what is the expectation about Head Office team members attending?
This is our first ever UK National Company Conference and every UK Weight Watchers employee (Head Office, Leaders and the Field Team) is expected to attend. Please talk to your line manager if you are unable to make it.
Will I get a day back?
Everyone will be entitled to a day back in lieu for attending Conference. This should be arranged on a one to one basis with your Line Manager for a time that is mutually agreeable.
Can I carry my lieu day into 2014?
If this is mutually agreeable then, yes. It needs to be taken no later than the end of January 2014.
How will we get there?
The journey from Maidenhead to Harrogate is around 4 hours and we will be arranging for executive coaches to take the whole Head Office team to the venue. The coaches will be leaving from the Maidenhead office at around 7am. There will be no need for an overnight stay and you will be back in Maidenhead on the Sunday evening.
If you live a considerable distance away from the Maidenhead office, you will have the option of travelling on a coach that is leaving from that Area. We will confirm this to you nearer the time.

The Conference is a business event so dress code will be smart business attire (no jeans or trainers).
