It has been observed that the retail sector has one of the highest turnover rates across the globe. Some of the reasons for such high turnover rate can be attributed to the fact that retail jobs are considered to be boring and repetitive with little training and low pay or benefits. There are frequent changes to the schedules without any notice that can make the lives of the employees difficult and there are very few opportunities for advancement. To prove this, Hay Group conducted a research which showed that there is a median turnover rate of 67% for part-time retail employees. With such high employee turnover, it is imperative for you to conduct 360 degrees employee background checking solutions. This will ensure that you identify the talented pool of candidates that are best fit for your requirements. Scrutinize your candidate’s background check history quickly at an overall lower cost with our automated solutions.
