cut-e's experience and expertise in the retail and hospitality sector
cut-e knows the very specific retail sector characteristics and their impact on talent decisions. We draw on our industry experience and range of cutting-edge, robust psychometric assessments to help our clients design more efficient screening, hiring and development processes.
The fast-moving, customer-driven retail industry has very specific attributes that influence talent decisions. Hiring is fast and talent teams are small, efficient, highly expert, and need to support local hiring teams to make hiring decisions. Identifying relevant skills such as service-orientation and client-facing with a direct sales and revenue impact is crucial when assessing for retail jobs. All candidates are potential customers so there is even more pressure to make them feel they have been treated fairly. Identify and engage the most suitable talent early and inform the development of future leaders in the retail sector!
