Technology makes a difference
Consumer behaviour has moved rapidly to online shopping and purchasing in the past 12 months, and the impact has been immediate throughout the retail sector. Analysts estimate that retailers’ plans for digital transformation have accelerated by five to ten years. Bricks-and-mortar transactions are being replaced by websites, kiosks, direct mail and catalogs, call centers, social media, mobile devices, gaming consoles, televisions, networked appliances, and home services. Consequently, the recruiting needs of retailers have been focused on the digital transformation.
We have been recruiting for retail firms since the days of cash registers. Beginning with regional retailers looking to improve their Sales and Marketing we branched out into Operations and Finance, becoming trusted advisors to many of the largest retailers in Canada.
We have built a strong network of top performers throughout every level of the retail industry. Through dozens of successful assignments, we have learned the marketplace in depth: the challenges, the competitive landscape, and the requirements for a successful match of client and candidate.
As for technology, Lock has kept up to date with investments in our own AI-based CRM systems. We use ICT, algorithms, and data science on a daily basis to connect with our audiences, assess candidates, and secure top talent for our clients. Let us put our expertise to work for you.
Since day one, our formula for success has been simple: care deeply, and deliver. We know that your next hire could be the one who changes everything for your team, and we pride ourselves on helping you close the deal with the talent who can take you to the next level.
Our founder’s entrepreneurial grit reaches from coast to coast, and you can expect the same delivery-driven, passionately-proven partnership in any one of the Lock team’s 12 offices. With consultants who boast average tenures of a decade or more, we’re not messing around –– we’re here to make the match that measures up.
What is your story, and what’s the story behind it? Our client-centric focus puts you and your specific goals firmly at the heart of our search process. We’re here to listen.
You’ll receive an individual action plan when you work with Lock, and we’ll be right on the same page every step of the way: what we will do, how you’ll see it happen, and when to expect results will all be clearly defined from the very beginning.
We’ve been building incredible teams at Lock since 1983. In that time, we’ve crafted a strong network of business leaders, decision makers, and influencers.
But that’s only half of the story. Our recruiters make genuine connections because they’ve lived their industries, and they understand the field’s unique nuances, needs, and subtleties from the inside out. No matter your business, the cutting edge is where you’ll find us.
