Overview

E-Commerce has transformed the nature of business; especially in the Retail sector. As new technologies continue to redefine traditional business practices, brands increasingly rely on AI to automate and customise the retail experience in order to simplify shopping for the consumer. Digital marketing, Virtual Reality, Omnichannel Commerce, People Analysis and AI have become integral aspects of the E-Business; as consumers as well as employees increasingly have expectations of a seamless, tech-enabled E-Commerce experience. As a result, industry professionals may confront a future workforce where the need for human intervention is debated.

Even so, E-Commerce business models are increasingly gravitating towards delivering cross-platform experiences, where focus is shifting from eliminating brick and mortar retail to finding ways of combining offline channels with Online-Enabled channels. As such, industry experts need constantly up-skill to stay ahead of the game; and HR professionals need to balance their functions, ensuring that they can identify, acquire and develop a capable workforce  that can support these transformative and innovative business strategies in the new digital age.
