Talent Insights Dashboard Details 

Today’s competitive retail market positions convenience stores in the same labor pool as every channel of trade that wants to attract, hire and retain the best talent. To stand out among the crowd, human resource professionals must keep up with the rapid pace of change by developing and implementing compensation strategies that can help them succeed. The foundation for this success is a data-driven strategy that informs decision making and execution.

Considered an essential dashboard for HR professionals in the convenience channel for more than 40 years, the NACS State of the Industry Talent Insights Dashboard® is the industry’s premier compensation benchmarking resource. This year’s survey provides the latest data, trends and best practices on compensation, benefits, recruitment and turnover as reported by 103 retail companies, representing more than 50,000 stores of all sizes and over 315,000 employees.
