The global pandemic has highlighted the importance of the retail workforce. Throughout the COVID-19 crisis retail workers have served on the frontlines to ensure families and communities have access to the products they need and want. And behind the scenes, thousands of retail workers are solving unprecedented problems and delivering new ways of shopping to customers and communities during a pandemic.
The retail industry needs workplace laws that allow for retailers to invest in their people while maintaining the flexibility to react to ever changing customer demands and expectations.
RILA is working with stakeholders to redesign and pursue workforce policies and practices to help retailers utilize the gig economy and technology, compete with other industries for talent, and serve customers and communities well.
