Ron Thurston turned his passion for retail into the book Retail Pride and podcast series Retail in America. Now, he’s turning his learnings speaking with retail leaders, associates and emerging talent alike into a new company: OSSY.
During this episode of Retail Remix, he reflects on how his career pivot over the past three years has brought him to founding OSSY. He discusses:
- What’s “broken” in retailers’ approach to talent acquisition and hiring;
- The hidden biases in the recruitment process;
- Why it’s time for retailers to rethink talent progression and training; and
- How OSSY is designed to empower emerging retail talent to take charge of their careers.
