Historically, it takes retailers 36 days, on average, to fill staff vacancies. Businesses with especially inefficient hiring practices may take even longer to hire and fill openings within the company.
Excessive hiring times can be detrimental to a retail business, as carrying vacancies for long periods can hinder their ability to serve customers. However, many companies are hesitant to shorten their screening process, as they are fearful that this will diminish the quality of new hires.
Fortunately, there is a way to efficiently vet candidates, reduce hiring time, and identify top applicants. The answer lies in retail pre-employment assessments. Many retailers have already deployed this screening solution to reduce hiring time by 50% and improve quality. Incorporating skills testing into hiring practices is just one of the many ways that retail employers are adapting to the future of work.
