Omni-connected retail workforces—a new dynamic

September 14, 2022 5-MINUTE READ

Are retail employees getting what they want and need?

Be seen

Empowered to bring their whole selves to work in an environment that cultivates equality.

Be heard

Asked about their views and assured that there is room for their contributions and ideas.

Learn

Encouraged to build skills to remain employable in the future in roles that are satisfying.

Feel safe

Strengthened by a culture that values wellness and trust as non-negotiables.

Advance

Offered predictable career paths and skills to continually take on new challenges.

1 out of 8

Only one in eight retail employees feels omni-connected at work.

Omni-connected experiences make employees feel highly connected to each other, their leaders and their work—and support their desire to be seen, heard, learn, feel safe and advance.

Create retail employee value with omni-connected experiences

1

Instill modern leadership: Lead with empathy, transparency and trustworthiness

2
