Retail is one of the most important sectors driving economic growth in Canada. It connects the producers with the consumers in the economic system and engages in activities selling consumer goods and services to the public. The retail sector is highly competitive with low-profit margins which makes companies control costs to sustain profitability.
With growth and disruption in complementary sectors and trade globalization, the retail industry has become highly competitive and as a result, companies must focus equally on controlling their costs and safeguarding their market share through extensive employee training and engagement. Knowledgeable, highly trained staff is a key competitive edge for retailers who want to 'close sales' on their first touch of a Consumer visit to their store.
Retail 'big-box' and global, services 'chains' must 'flex' their workforce; scaling quickly to execute within their specific retail markets capitalizing on new and exciting promotions and incentives to foster consumer loyalty to their brand, maximize their peak 'seasonal' events and generate as much new market share possible, to meet their forecasted revenue projections and ultimately maintain shareholder satisfaction. Having access to a reliable, screened, motivated 'on-demand' workforce is crucial to meeting their day-to-day retail sales KPI's and revenue goals. While their Human Resources team focuses on top-tier talent acquisition to keep their organization at the top of their game, so to speak, they rely on outsourcing 'casual' labour hiring almost always paying a premium charge for this service.
