(From The Economic Times) -- The Indian organised retail sector is
worried over the lack of talent, threat of poaching, unavailability
of experienced manpower and stressful work environment, says a
study undertaken jointly by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India and the
Retailer's Association of India.
Although attraction and retention of talent continue to be
concerns, Indian retailers have developed strategies to overcome
these issues in critical work segments like merchandising and brand
management. The study says retail companies should focus on
developing a talent management strategy influencing business
In terms of compensation, operations scored highest in fixed pay
component followed by business development, sales and
merchandising. The annual increment the retailers doled out to
their employees in 2010-11 was around 10%.
