To Address The Shortage Of Talent In The Retail Industry,iDA Singapore Is Launching Its Retail Ambassador Program To Employ 1000 Sales Professionals

22/09/2022 12:37 PM

TOKYO, Sept 22 (Bernama) -- In July 2022, iDA Singapore (iDA’SG), the Singapore branch of World Mode Holdings (WMH), a Japanese group that provides diverse solutions to the fashion and beauty industries, began to hire retail professionals and develop their skills through a unique training program to counter the human resource challenges facing ASEAN companies and job applicants in the retail industry. The Retail Ambassador Program was launched to connect professional retail staff with various companies in a flexible way that meets job requirements, such as length of employment, skill set and experience as a full-time employee. The target of our initial recruitment drive is 1000 workers, though we intend to expand the program as we diligently listen to feedback from companies and job applicants.

Providing companies with efficient recruitment and job applicants with employment stability.

The rise of e-commerce in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic and the return of foreign workers to their home countries have further exacerbated the shortage of talent in the retail industry. To mitigate the long established high turnover rate in the retail industry, companies have traditionally relied on short-term employees, which has resulted in a lack of training for sales professionals. For staff, this has meant being exposed to an unstable employment environment while also receiving good benefits.
