As the largest private sector employer in the UK, with one in ten of the workforce employed in the sector, retail encompasses a wide range of professions and is at the forefront of workplace skills development and flexible working.
Retail and consumer goods companies are dealing with pension scheme deficits, executive reward and, given the relatively high levels of staff turnover, the issues of
recruitment, staff retention and skills. As your employees may well represent a significant cost to your business, it is important to increasingly look at innovative methods to reduce this cost.
