Grocery tips toward e-commerce

Rapidly changing consumer behavior has transformed grocery shopping from an in-store errand to a task that only requires a few clicks. Shoppers have pivoted to online ordering, grocery delivery, and curbside pickup, but it’s not all bad news for the world’s grocers.

Grocery shopping is on the rebound. Although foot traffic stalled at the start of the pandemic, it has since stabilized and has even surpassed pre-pandemic levels in some cases.

A shift toward e-commerce presents an opportunity for new positions in inventory management, shelf restocking, and warehouse associates to manage deliveries. But in order to attract this new wave of workers, recruiters need to modernize their hiring practices, simplify functions and workflows, and enable flexible, intuitive hiring that can be easily replicated across geographies.


If you’re hiring in the grocery sector, you’re facing the following:

An 11.7% growth in online grocery sales over the next five years

A record-high quit rate of nearly 6%, which did not change between 2021 and 2022
