As we all know, Indian retail is a growing industry, employing 43 million people, with manpower costs adding up to 7 per cent of total costs in retail. As the need for a skilled workforce continues to grow unabated, retail industry is facing a multitude of challenges. Shortage of trained manpower, over 6 per cent monthly attrition and increasingly disengaged front-end staff are the 3 major challenges being faced by the industry, putting a greater onus on discovering and tapping new talents.
PwD, with a population of 70 million but less than 1 per cent employed, is an untapped source of manpower that provides a unique opportunity to venture into. PwD can create diversity which is good for the business because they not only improve workplace morale and elevate customer service but are untapped resources of skills and talent who only helps in enhancing various business opportunities
