Recruitment - Michael Page Retail

The word “change” has been tossed around by everybody recently, including retail. Certainly, not without a reason. Today, it is not enough to simply have a better sales volume than the year before. The retail sector needs to adapt to the new needs of its clients who expect a real customer experience instead of a couple of ordinary shelves with a stack of merchandise. The industry also needs to offer more than before if it does not want to lose customers, and wage a winning battle with on-line selling sites. Creating shopping & living places, using more and more technologies that cooperate with smartphones, and taking advantage of the assets of brick and mortar shops in a smart way – all this can be a key to gaining competitive advantage over e-commerce. Having said that, change requires people who will follow trends and take a company into a new digital era.

As far as recruitment in retail is concerned, it is worth trusting the best – the Michael Page Retail team. Staff recruitment for the retail sector ought to be conducted by advisors who have passion and experience.
