Founder and chief executive of Best Companies, Jonathan Austin, hopes these organisations will serve as motivation for other retailers. Austin comments: “These 10 companies, using the most up-to-date employee engagement data available, have been singled out as the very best places to work in the retail industry
“Any organisation that is attempting to improve engagement in their own workplace should look to these businesses for inspiration, and as a benchmark to measure themselves against.”
Fast-paced and ever-changing, the retail industry is one of the most competitive and unpredictable as consumer spending habits fluctuate from month to month. Whether you specialise in jewellery, fashion, beauty or food, the pressure is always on to stand out from the crowd in a way that will bring you loyal customers and a strong, passionate workforce.
The top 10 retail businesses made it on the list for highly-engaging with employees, setting themselves apart from the rest, recruiting talented candidates, setting company goals and making their team proud.
