NEW YORK — Workers in the apparel and retail industry are not feeling the love from their bosses.
And from the corporate human resources perspective, the difficulties of recruiting and retaining workers — especially younger ones — have never been greater.
According to a job satisfaction survey conducted and sponsored by WWD, 24 Seven Inc. and C-Suite Inc., and presented at the first WWD Human Resources Leadership Forum this month, just 12 percent of the respondents said they felt valued by their employers. Speakers at the conference said the challenge of recruiting and retaining talent was enormous. Dissatisfied employees, high turnover and generational differences in the workplace as well as aging workers are among the issues facing companies.
