The war for talent: Retailers’ strategies for meeting today’s hiring needs
The retail industry employs hundreds of millions of people worldwide, and has the power to spark impressive change and build extraordinary careers. There are significant challenges to hiring at all levels, however: technology, the economy and society change consumer behavior and employee expectations, and misconceptions about retail can curtail interest from highly qualified candidates. Experts from Kohl's, The Home Depot and Greyston Bakery will outline how they're building and maintaining a competitive edge, and promoting retail as an attractive long-term career path.
