Address mental health issues facing retail employees
High stress from customer interactions
Retail employees regularly deal with demanding customers who may have unrealistic expectations or even display aggressive behavior. The emotional labor can be challenging to navigate and wear on mental well-being.
Long hours and irregular schedules
The nature of the retail industry typically means working long hours —often including weekends and holidays — and irregular schedules can disrupt sleep patterns and contribute to feelings of burnout or exhaustion.
Lack of recognition and advancement opportunities
Retail workers often feel undervalued when there is lack of recognition for their hard work or limited opportunities for career growth within the company. This can harm sentiment, leading to high turnover.
