1:45 PM Panel Discussion Remix: Enhancing Efficiency In Your Business Through Revamped Associate Hiring And Training Processes

As store associates take on new responsibilities and roles in stores, it is important to adapt your hiring and training processes to acquire, retain and train talent that is well-aligned with your store’s identity. While many retail skills are transferrable between retail jobs and across industries, there are some qualities that make a good associate that cannot be trained. Learn how to revamp your hiring and training programs in this group discussion. 

- Developing interactive trainings to instruct new associates on store policies and practices 
- Determining which industries have employees whose skills are easily transferrable to retail 
- Establishing guidelines for which qualities and skills can be taught and which are inherent, personality-related qualities 
- Spending less time, money and energy hiring and training through refined employment criteria and more effective trainings
