The Retail Talent Marketplace

An executive perspective on growing people from within


To better understand ways companies are tackling today’s talent challenges and positioning themselves for long-term success, Deloitte collaborated with the National Retail Federation (NRF) to conduct a comprehensive survey of the industry’s talent management strategies and practices. The new report, The Retail Talent Marketplace: An executive perspective on growing people from within, was designed to provide an in-depth look into where retailers are succeeding on the talent front – and where they are coming up short.

Survey respondents included senior executives from the largest retailers in the U.S. based on STORES' Top 100 list. Respondents represented major retail sectors – including specialty, department stores, grocery, pharmacy, discount, and Internet. The findings revealed a disconnect between what surveyed retail executives strive for and what they are able to accomplish. These retailers believe that they have a strategy in place to grow talent from within, but they are often hard-pressed to implement effective programs to achieve their goals.
