It's Never Too Early To Stack Your Team For The Holiday Season

In 2018, holiday eCommerce sales was responsible for $126 billion — a 16.5 percent increase from the $108.2 billion generated in 2017, and sales are not set to slow down this year. With talent demand at an all-time high, stocking up your team for success should be top of mind. No matter your industry, it’s never too early to start planning your holiday talent strategy.

Holiday retail talent, pop-up staff and customer service professionals are in high-demand

Whether you are looking to staff a seasonal pop-up, ensure you’re covered for Black Friday, secure store-line talent all season long, or need a team to get your digital strategy in place, we have your needs covered this holiday season.

Need retail talent for an upcoming pop-up?

After several successful demo experiences, a well-known internet platform wanted to expand their market presence with two product launch pop-up stores in New York and Los Angeles. With a 7-week timeline to launch, 24 Seven successfully staffed both markets with over 175 interviews and 68 positions filled.

Is your in-store retail talent ready for Black Friday?

When an international, contemporary fashion retailer needed to fill 200 freelance, store line, support roles across 12 full-line retail locations on Black Friday, 24 Seven’s recruitment team was able to deliver top talent within 5 days. From Stock Specialists and Runners to Sales Associates, we successfully placed 200 candidates with retail experience who were also a brand fit.

Are store-line retail Freelancers your answer this Holiday retail season?

A global, luxury fashion retailer needed to fill 500 freelance, store-line support roles including Stock Specialists, Runners, Greeters, Sales Specialists & Visual Merchandisers. With a 4-week timeline, 24 Seven’s team sourced and interviewed over 1,500 candidates and placed 500 candidates with luxury sales/retail experience. Year over year, this client engages 24 Seven for an increased volume of retail talent management support.

Are your events staffed with top talent?

Along with the increase in retail sales, the holidays also means an uptick in events. When an event company needed to staff the holiday party for a Fortune 500 Silicon Valley Company, they engaged 24 Seven to provide Event Managers, Bartenders and Servers within a 2 week turnaround. Since then, this client has awarded 24 Seven with additional corporate events for other Fortune 1000 Silicon Valley clients stating, “the professionalism, the high quality of the staff [24 Seven] sent, the overall business attitude, was far and beyond expectations!”
