What can you do to decrease employee turnover in retail?

Create a continuous learning environment

It may be tempting to teach your employee everything in the first week of onboarding, but with that method, most information won’t be retained. Instead, train your employees in chunks with adequate absorption time in between. The positive results will outweigh the costs.

Focus on internal talent development

Recognize the value that can be captured from existing employees. Instead of letting your employees get bored during downtime, focus on enhancing their skills. In a sector that evolves quickly, there is always something new to learn or something existing to improve.

Create effective training from the get go

If your employees tend to be part-time, your training program should reflect that. By breaking your training program down into small, mobile-ready chunks of information, you are catering to a generation that is on-the-go, craves instant gratification and has a short attention span.

Create mobile-ready training videos

Training material in the retail sector should reflect its young, tech-savvy and on-the-go workforce. This means training material should be highly visual, bite-sized and accessible on mobile devices. With engaging content at their fingertips, your employees are much more likely to absorb and retain the information.

Generate employee-made training materials

No one knows the job better than your key employees. Involve these employees in the generation of training material; whether its through self-made videos or mentorship programs. This rewards your key employees and also stimulates engagement through more relatable and realistic training material.

Assess progress for instant gratification

Insert gradable quizzes or assessments into your training material to give your employees the instant gratification they crave. Asides sparking employee engagement, this lets managers keep track of their employees’ progress.
