Why the importance of eLearning for Retail can't be oversold
The Retail sector operates on a scale. A business often has tens or hundreds of thousands of employees to train, across many branches, cities, even countries.
Training needs in the Retail industry begin with basic employee onboarding, training for sales assistants, cashiers and storage room staff, specialized courses for retail managers, merchandisers and customer service assistants. eLearning can help retail businesses address all of these training needs and save money, time, and effort.
