The National Retail Federation’s “Retail’s Big Blog” is an insightful read on all retail industry happenings. Take a look at this great story they just posted about how a sizeable portion of FORTUNE Magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list this year is comprised of retailers. There are 14 of us on the list! We just love that and of course think that retail is the BEST career out there!
The blog post explores some common traits among the retailers who made the list – like “a commitment to people” and “focus on the community.” The Container Store is mentioned for offering competitive compensation and benefits, which we’re very proud of. Check out what they had to say about other retailers on the list, like Starbucks, REI, Zappos.com and Build-A-Bear Workshop!
