Balancing shifting shopper demographics and a growing number of online competitors, retailers are on the hunt for ways to stand out.

In the smart, connected and digital world where organizations are collecting mountains of information, manufacturing and supply chain leaders are harnessing the power of big data to make strategic decisions that drive their business forward. These data-driven decisions are enabling organizations to transform everything from their products to their processes and production models. But there’s still an enormous opportunity that remains largely untapped: their people.

In this webinar, retail training experts discuss the challenges facing retailers today, as well as why customer experience is such an important part of developing customer loyalty and maintaining profitability. They also reveal how training and development plays a crucial role in delivering that experience to customers. They’ll explore…

  • Why customer experience is a competitive advantage for today’s retailers
  • The role training and development plays in impacting the customer experience
  • How to meet the unique needs of the retail associate learner
  • Understanding what to look for in solutions
