Shaping a multi-generational workforce for digital age
In the new digital world, where 24 hour shopping is at our finger tips – what time of the day would you say is the busiest hour for online shopping? 12pm on a Saturday? 3pm on a Sunday? No, between 5am-6am Monday to Friday revealed Hayley Tatum, HR director of grocery giant, ASDA.
Hayley also shared that in terms of global shopping trends, the UK is well and truly on the map. ASDA will open their first ‘Pod shop’ this year, which offers a drive-in automated shopping service (no employees required) looking to change both the way consumers shop and the supply chain forever.
Stats from ASDA showed that 40% of 16-24 years now work for big retailers, and that employees aged 55+ are on the increase too, including ASDA’s oldest employee, Ray Mellors who celebrated his 90th Birthday recently.
