However, this doesn’t mean the need for talent is in decline. In fact, retailers who promote better in-store experiences are still growing and are letting candidates know that their doors are wide open.

And what happens next is critical to engender lasting loyalty, trust and mutual investment of time, resources and support. Make no mistake, the employee experience greatly impacts retention, not only workforce retention, but customer retention too.
Versatility is an essential part of building a more engaged and effective work culture.
All of your employees have predictable behavioral patterns (their “Social Style”), but 65 percent of them don’t realize the effects their preferred behaviors have on other people around them. By helping people understand these behaviors—why they exist and how we can adapt them to the people we work with—you’ll build a more productive, collaborative environment that appreciates diversity of thought.
