Talent Scenario : Over time, we will see many more talented people from other sectors, including FMCG and consumer goods, join retail.

Talent War : While attrition on the management side tends to be low, on the front-end, the scene is different. For many people, this tends to be their first job, so they stay on or leave depending on how much they like it.

Profiles in Demand : Overall, there is still a paucity of talent in areas like operations and specialised functions including merchandising, category management and the like. There's still a demand for good talent across sectors.
