The results of the survey conducted by the Hay Management Consultants in 2001, which show that shopworkers will get a better deal from their employers and a wider range of rewards from their work by 2005 are presented. The survey also reveals that retailers will respect their store-based staff far more highly in the future, offering them much more support and flexibility in managing both their worklife balance and the development of their careers. According to the survey, shopworkers can also look forward to improved workplace facilities and social life, to recognition of their achievements being fairer and more consistent, and to their work being less frenetic and stressful.
