Retail Training for your Team

Your front-line retail workers are facing significant challenges beyond their typical day due to the pandemic. They have new cleaning and safety protocols in addition to stocking and selling. Their most difficult task may be conflict management when enforcing safety protocols with customers. Make sure they have the training they need to de-escalate irate customers while keeping everyone safe.

We have curated a curriculum of courses from our Business Skills library targeting the unique needs of retail employees.
