HR Challenges Facing Retail Businesses

In today’s rapidly changing retail environment, many of the challenges facing retail businesses are people challenges. High staff turnover has always been a factor, with seasonal demands leading to spikes in recruiting activity which can disrupt normal business. And many retailers rely on their local managers to hire the staff they need when they need it. This can cause problems for managers who don’t have recruiting experience, especially if they don’t have easy access to corporate guidelines and processes to help them.

Most important of all, when more customers are moving away from the high street to online shopping, it’s vital for retail businesses to make sure the face-to-face customer experience is the best it can be. So hiring the right people and making sure they understand what they need to do to match up to your business’ standards can mean the difference between leading and following.
