Retail is here to stay
The retail industry continues to be an important industry for the region as governments in the GCC continue to invest in making the region one of the top tourist destinations globally. There is also optimism for industry in the long term as there continues to be a strong culture of locals and expats visiting shopping malls and spending.
In order to capture the growth potential of the retail sector in a currently challenging environment, it requires regional firms and retailers to adapt quickly to the changing patterns in consumer behaviors and habits and implement innovative sales strategies to maximize coverage.
Online shopping becoming more routine
The accelerated adoption of online shopping among consumers is forcing organizations to adopt omni-channel retailing. The challenge for leaders is finding a healthy balance between brick and mortar and online channels. Online and Offline retailing involve entirely different operations, marketing, sales and fulfillment strategies. What both approaches have in common is that each requires people with appropriate skills.
As retailers look to take advantage of opportunities online, they require talent with the right skills in areas including analytics, customer experience, digital marketing and conversion, design, content and fulfillment.
