We polled over 1,200 corporate leaders, managers and workers and we’re excited to reveal the results in The Deskless Report: Retail Edition 2023 so retailers can make smarter, data-driven decisions to support their workforces at scale. 

Here’s a preview of what we uncovered:

  • 54% of retail managers feel burned out on a daily basis
  • 40% of associates are considering leaving their job (up from 37% last year)
  • While 62% of corporate retail leaders believe their communication is effective, only 28% of associates agree
  • 37% of retail managers and 25% of associates said that lack of employee training is impacting their day-to-day work. 
  • 67% of all retail respondents believe investing in new technologies for workers improves the overall success of their organization
