The overall labor market is finally starting to cool down this summer, and we’re seeing an interesting downturn for the retail sector in a time where seasonal hiring typically ramps up. In addition, more retail applicants are competing for fewer roles, with 24 job seekers per open role. Retailers are hiring slightly faster than the overall labor market. Hiring expectations are dropping worldwide this summer, although talent acquisition for in-demand roles remains strong. For retail, that means careful decisions about upcoming seasonal roles, as well as the potential for long-term hires. Job seekers say they’re looking for flexible schedules, sign-on bonuses and salary transparency.
