With the holidays right around the corner, shops, stores, malls and boutiques are about to ramp up their hiring. With long lines for your local mall Santa Claus, a premium on parking spots and a shopping list a mile long, these additional employees will have their work cut out for them. The importance of a good training program cannot be overstated as each new hire plays an equal part in ensuring the continuity of your supply chain. It is likely that every product you ship this year will have been handled by a new hire at some point. Amazon recently announced it will be hiring 80,000 seasonal employees. This time of the year provides a great opportunity for fulfillment centers to expand their talent pool.
