      Retailers across Australia are facing a hiring market that has never been experienced before; one that is challenging both recruitment and retention. Nationwide staff shortages represent one of the largest challenges facing Australian retailers today. "Adjacent to this is rising living costs, with the price of everyday essential items such as petrol, energy, and groceries all soaring in a rather short period of time. As an employer, we are in a position to make a real difference by supporting our employees through these challenges. "In the last six months we have introduced an array of benefits, partnerships, and health and wellbeing programmes to further improve our employee value proposition. The partnership with Wagestream extends this proposition by helping our staff get back the peace of mind that financial wellbeing can engender.
