HR COMMUNITY


As new technology, changing consumer behaviour and intense competition continue to transform retail, the BRC estimate there could be up to 900,000 fewer jobs by 2025. Our ‘Better Jobs’ vision sets out the future retail workplace which will see jobs in retail become higher skilled, more productive and better paid.

Through the HR Community, members can help drive and benefit from this vision.
