Peters: Can You Create and Retain the Perfect Employee?

The ongoing battle for talent is real, and it is upon us every day.  Navigating the hundreds of economic and labor dynamics surrounding Millennials, insourcing, outsourcing, healthcare reform and other labor laws creates a complex struggle to find and retain the right people.  But we are in the retail industry, and we will always need a continuous pipeline of candidates to fill our jobs: full time, part time, entry-level and professional. With the decline of the unemployment rate, finding trained and available talent is increasingly challenging.  It’s a numbers game, but the numbers simply don’t add up.  That doesn’t mean we have run out of people; it means we are running out of people using the methods we used just a few years ago.
