It’s a time of great change in the Retail Charity sector. What’s more, the pace of that change is accelerating. Internet vendors and value retailers provide fierce competition, and there are broader economic and technical obstacles to contend with.
This means that charity retailer organisations, and their staff, will need to work more quickly, accurately, and efficiently than ever before – and do so without suffering from overwork and stress! With the right support, it’s not only possible, but hugely desirable.
There is no better example of an unprecedented challenge than the recent Covid-19 pandemic.
This is uncharted territory for many retailers. Even those with years of experience to draw upon might find themselves unsure of the right way forward in a post-pandemic economy.
A successful charity retail business must successfully juggle dozens of variables. Often, the right action isn’t obvious. By the same token, identifying the root cause of underperformance can be extremely difficult for Boards and Retail teams.
To successfully address these difficulties Skyline has developed a bespoke, industry-leading consultancy service.
The service can be tailored to suit the individual requirements of the charity in question. It might come in the form of a single day, or as a weekly block of intensive analysis and feedback. As well as face-to-face support, you’ll also be able to reach us via phone, seven days a week.
