Retail & Consumer Goods

Talent for the Evolving Retail & Consumer Goods Landscape

The retail landscape is rapidly evolving. Consumer trends, like shopping and researching online, social commerce, and changing expectations in terms of technology and social responsibility work together to shape brands and redefine talent needs. In 2015, for the first time in history, more people did their Black Friday shopping online than in a store, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers. More than 80% of millennials use their mobile devices while shopping in-store, making online branding, digital shopping options, and social media engagement key elements of reaching your target market.

As consumer goods CEOs recognize the increasing roles of technology and online marketing for retail success, they also place higher value on discovering talent with the key skills needed to move the company forward. Hire Velocity helps you be successful with sophisticated retail recruitment methodologies designed to attract and retain the talent you need to increase profit margins, outperform the competition, and place your business at the forefront of today’s retail trends.
