Economic uncertainty and variations in consumer spending patterns have been quite challenging for CPG and retail companies in a post-pandemic world. These challenges are compounded by rising inflation, supply chain disruptions, talent constraints and sustainability. L&D leaders in these industries must lead the way in redefining the approach to people, processes, and technology to bolster growth and agility.
They also need to prepare their workforce for changing consumer behaviors and mindsets. The CPG and retail workforce need to be hyper-aligned with changing social norms. Along with professional and leadership skills, DEI, and brand values and culture are taking center stage for these companies.
