Building Tomorrow’s Workforce: How Retailers Are Attracting and Retaining Talent

The retail industry is the largest private sector employer in the U.S., accounting for nearly one in every four jobs. Since 2012, retail employment has grown by half a million jobs and is expected to grow by nearly another million by 2022. The number of hires not keeping pace with this job growth – along with a skills shortage due to gaps in education and training – weighs heavily on an industry that is becoming more sophisticated every day. Hear from three prominent retail CEOs who will discuss their company’s workforce planning priorities and how they are attracting, developing and retaining talent.
