Ben Sillitoe, editor of Retail Gazette, said one thing that needs to be done by companies which are struggling at the moment is to ensure that the likes of pay rises and perks handed out to employees are not the reason they are having difficulties in the first place.
Organisations looking to keep staff on board, including those in sales jobs, need to demonstrate that they are in touch with their workers.
"It is also about generating the right working environment, providing inspiring offices and stores to work in and keeping staff informed about how their company is performing," Mr Sillitoe added.
The expert added that this is "absolutely essential" for the overall success of a business and its growth in the months ahead.
Recent research carried out by the Society for Human Resource Management shows that employee engagement is one of the key concerns over the next three to five years as companies look to attract and retain the best staff, including sales recruitment candidates.
