The Conference will be held at Harrogate International Centre (HIC). To find out more about the venue visit http://www.harrogateinternationalcentre.co.uk.
The Conference is on a Sunday, what is the expectation about Head Office team members attending?
Why would you want to miss it? This is our very first UK National Company Conference and every UK Weight Watchers employee (Head Office, Leaders and the Field Team) will be expected to attend. Please talk to your ASM if you are unable to make it.
How much will I be paid?
All Leaders will be paid for 8 hours at a rate of £7.
You won’t need to do anything to claim for the day. If you attend Conference the Payroll team will automatically apply the payment in the January payrun. You will need to claim mileage to the coach pick up point in the usual way (via your eLAR) and this will also be paid in January.
What if I have to cancel a Meeting to attend?
If you need to cancel a Meeting to attend Conference we will calculate your average earning for that specific Meeting in the 12 weeks up to Conference. You will receive this average earnings payment and the payment for Conference.
How will we get there?
Rest assured, we will be arranging executive coach travel to get you to the venue on time and in style. We will arrange for a coach to collect every Area (ASM and all Leaders in the Area) from a centrally designated place so you can travel to the event as a team.
If you have to travel more than 4 hours one way in a coach to get to Harrogate, we will be arranging for you to stay overnight on the Saturday night to ensure that you arrive on time and refreshed. If this applies to you we will be in contact. Please be patient as we work through the logistics of this.
What is the Dress Code?
The Conference is a business event so dress code will be smart business attire. Think along the lines of what you wear to inspire your Members when running a Meeting.
What do I need to know?
We need to know if you are coming! We have set up the RSVP process in a similar way to Leader training so you should hopefully find it very familiar. Please respond to the questions on the following page by Saturday 28th September. You will notice we are also asking you for your Weight Watchers email address. Please ensure you include this so we can send you an acknowledgement email and keep you abreast of important information in the run up to Conference.
We understand you may have a lot of questions about the practicalities of the day so we have answered as many as possible. If you have any other questions please do let us know by emailing internalcommunications@Weight-Watchers.co.uk and we will be back in touch as soon as we can. In one team spirit, if you have a question others may find useful we will make sure we include the answer on this page.
Please keep an eye out for more information.
We look forward to seeing you in Harrogate!
The Conference Team
