Challenges in the retail industry include constant changes in staffing requirements, high turnover, scheduling requirements, tracking and seasonal variations to name but a few and finding a comprehensive, one-stop HR and payroll solution to handle all of these factors can be tricky. By taking the time to source and invest in quality HR software, you will get to experience a host of benefits in your retail business.
