The race for talent in Retail

High volume recruiting leading to the pressure to find and retain quality candidates is an ongoing reality in the retail industry. Combine this with enormous numbers of applications flowing in and it’s a constant search for “a needle in the haystack” to find the right candidate quickly—and a continuous frustration for retail managers worldwide.
On average, a retail business is overloaded, and overwhelmed, with candidate flow.
