The Retail Sector is under extreme stress in this current climate

Retail businesses are reviewing their operations carefully in order to:

– Adapt

– Future proof their world

– Survive the Global Coronavirus Recession (GCR)

– Reducing costs

– Reduce internal employment cost, commitment and liability

Retail will be operating far leaner than we ever had, on learner budgets, with leaner staffing levels, all whilst trying to maintain and elevate the best levels of customer experience and productivity. Economists predicting unemployment will rise as high as 19% in 2020. The hardest hit sector will be our Retail sector, with many becoming unemployed through redundancy or stood down.
