Training retail staff in challenging times
The retail industry knows a thing or two about challenging times. But this may just be the most challenging environment for retailers in living memory.
Doing more with less is a reality for most working in retail today. With customer expectations higher than ever, balancing excellent service with operational tasks is a daily challenge. And with significantly reduced footfall for physical stores, it’s essential for your people to maximise every opportunity.
Add in new safety protocols, hygiene routines, the need to cross-sell and upsell – it’s a lot for your staff to take get to grips with. Muddled onboarding and half-baked training are liabilities you cannot afford.

2.5x revenue growth: The impact of Bohus’ gamified training
Scandinavian furniture retailer Bohus needed to make sure its sales staff had a complete understanding of its new range of products ahead of a big promotional launch.
Using Attensi SKILLS, Bohus created an intensive training programme over the 6 weeks prior to launch. Delivered as a mobile app directly to staff devices, the training used a range of mini-games and interactive scenarios to help staff sharpen their product knowledge.
Amongst stores who trained the most with Attensi SKILLS, revenue increased by up to 2.5x compared to stores who trained the least. 96% of staff agreed the training improved their product knowledge.
"It has helped us increase merchandise sales and basket size while reducing employee turnover. Plus, 97% of store managers like this type of training and say it makes onboarding easier and ensures more consistent behaviour."Kristian Planke Styrmo, Director of People Development, Circle K
Why repetition matters
We use a combination of the best insights from training, gaming, and clinical psychology to design all our solutions with user repetition front of mind. Why?
Research confirms that repeating content is the most essential ingredient for learning new skills and behaviours. In fact, if training only occurs once, after just one month up to 80% of learning is forgotten.*
