Team Hanscom Charitable During Annual Cfc Drive – Retailers are used to hearing that their industry is changing. This does not make it any less true. Or something easy.
The list of priorities for retail business leaders is growing. The next phase of sustainable growth must begin there. This means accelerating digital, data and AI capabilities and ultimately achieving full integration between digital and physical retail.

It also means moving the entire business around more sustainable operating models and a long-term commitment to environmental and social responsibility. This combination of operational and responsive, technology-driven and unified operations requires profound changes that will affect almost every aspect of the retail business.

The retail industry is currently facing many macroeconomic pressures and a highly unpredictable operating environment. From geopolitical conflicts and global supply disruptions to persistent inflation and tightening consumer wallets, as well as the pandemic’s long-term impact on talent acquisition, it can be difficult to maintain profitability, let alone achieve new growth.
For this reason, some may be tempted to cut back and wait for a lull before making a change. But they can wait a long time.
Staying relevant to today’s consumers means aligning retail offerings to their goals in a brand-friendly way. This means going beyond business relationships and engaging and understanding customers in a different way.
On the one hand, it’s a question of information—knowing how and with whom to share it. But it’s also about improving consumer “buy-in” for brands by creating more relevant, intimate offers and experiences. Because the cost of customer acquisition is high, it is best to use data to attract the best new customers who will provide positive brand value. It may be hard to admit, but not all customers are good customers. Some people only buy when there are deep discounts or regular returns.
How A Responsible Reset Will Drive Retail’s Pursuit For Growth
Today’s explosion of customer channels requires retailers to develop a unified, highly personalized experience that blends online and offline. Doing so requires creativity, agility, and a willingness to experiment to ensure performance.
The growth of direct streaming from retail stores is a good example. For example, Nordstrom Direct Shopping offers exciting interactive retail experiences ranging from beauty and fashion to home furnishings.
Deep platforms are a key growth area to watch. While the buzz around the Metaverse makes it difficult to distinguish concrete opportunities from hopeful rumors, retailers were among the first movers in the pre-existing online space. Examples include Burberry’s classic art-inspired Olympia bag and experiences like Vans World on Roblox.
As inflation eases and consumer expectations rise again, finding better performance models is becoming increasingly important. Many retailers turn to local fulfillment (on their own or with partners) at the regional, community, neighborhood and even street level. For this exercise, the combination of predictive analytics capabilities with supply chain and store network design.

Consider how Alibaba’s supermarket chain Hema has dedicated about half of each location to fulfillment, while half of each location is devoted to regular retail space and in-store grocery use. Customers living within a radius of 3 km can get free delivery of store products for 30 minutes; They can also get next-day delivery on an expanded range of 20,000+ products from a shared distribution center. Hema uses real-time data to understand what and where to store its products.
Resource sourcing of products and raw materials from businesses will be important not only to strengthen supply stability in an uncertain world, but also to enable businesses to balance environmental sustainability with greater financial sustainability.
Emphasis should be placed on developing data-driven capabilities such as “what-if” environmental modeling, predictive analytics, and near-real-time supply chain transparency, as well as rebalancing the country’s domestic, local, and external supplier mix.
Given the challenges of the post-pandemic labor market, one of the most important priorities right now is attracting and retaining a motivated retail workforce. Now is the right time to reboot the retail workplace, making sure it’s truly supportive and flexible, that employees feel heard and have the skills, tools and freedom to fulfill their responsibilities and succeed in their careers.

Digital technology has opened up all new possibilities here. For example, Amazon’s AMZN WorkingWell is an employee-developed app that provides workplace health and healthy eating tips that are easily accessible through a user-friendly mobile app.
As you can see from the above, a mature approach to data and analytics (including artificial intelligence) will drive almost every aspect of the retail revolution. Most marketers agree. However, achieving data maturity in practice often remains a challenge.
The goal should not only be to get the right data, but to ensure that the insights are reliable, accessible and actionable for the entire business. This affects the working model and the training and education of employees, as well as the digital infrastructure of the organization.
Given the pace of change today, retailers looking to grow in the coming years must be prepared to adapt to all of the above and more. It certainly won’t be easy. But it’s never perfect. Now is the time to reintroduce accountability and set your business up for future growth.
