HR Transformation in Retail

Digitisation, the need for efficiency and a greater focus on well-being at work: these three factors radically are changing the role of HR in retail businesses. In a tight labour market, the emphasis when recruiting people becomes convincing people. Digital tools are breaking through, artificial intelligence is emerging, new forms of remuneration are emerging, burn-out prevention is becoming a priority. How do retailers deal with this new reality in their HR strategy? This congress explores the opportunities that an HR transformation has to offer retailers.

A high paced continuous change for the organization and the people creating that organization. A never ending story about new technology, new roles and processes. But for sure … the biggest change lies in changing the human behavior of our people.

  • How could we create a positive mindset about the digitalization of their working environment?

  • How could we develop basic digital competences to cope with these challenges?

1 year before this digital wave, we engaged all our employees in a Digital Academy.


Charlotte Meiresonne - Human Resources Manager - Accent Jobs

Committed employees ensure satisfied customers.

But how do you ensure committed employees?

When someone feels emotionally connected to the company's vision and strategic goals they are a truly committed employee. That is why it is crucial to communicate the vision and goals of the company in an inspiring and clear way throughout the organisation.

Charlotte would like to guide you along the path they took within Accent, in the hope of inspiring you to introduce a dream statement within your own organisation.
