I Love Mondays: “Finding good people is hard. Keeping them is harder.” Problems faced by all managers are exacerbated in your retail world where labour challenges persist. Money (what you pay per hour, and number of hours you offer) is a challenge, but it’s not the solution. YOU are the solution. When your people say “I love working here and I love working with you!” you’ll experience increased employee engagement, improved retention, better productivity and performance. Plus, your operation’s reputation as a place people love to work will attract better talent. Find out how you can help create a workplace where people live, work and play extraordinarily well together so that everyone wins big.

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
