Read the latest issue of ShelfLife | January 2021
After a challenging year, the 2020 Grocery Management Awards were an excellent occasion to celebrate our industry’s hard-working retail managers who have shown tremendous dedication throughout Covid- 19, and each of our 15 deserving award winners are highlighted in this month’s issue. We also caught up with our Supreme Champion for 2020, Jamie Caffrey of SuperValu Blanchardstown, to learn more about her career trajectory to date and plans for the future.
Meanwhile, following the finalisation of the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement, reports of empty shelves in some supermarkets and complete confusion at ports have already surfaced. Fionnuala Carolan examines the impact on supply chains and what we can expect as the year progresses.
Elsewhere, at a time when many are struggling to maintain a work/life balance during Ireland’s third-wave lockdown, Excel Recruitment’s Barry Whelan highlights how setting healthy boundaries around our online connectivity can greatly benefit our mental health.
And as 2021 begins, The HR Suite’s Caroline McEnery outlines the latest regulations and practices which all HR departments can expect. Our marketing expert Colin Gordon likewise shares some solid advice on how marketers can achieve better results by taking the time to improve their holistic knowledge of their business.
As always, our category features provide an in-depth look at the trends, brands and developments driving sales in-store, with this month’s issue focusing on the bottled water and cooked meat sectors.
