THE BIS TEAM

DEVELOPING AND GROWING A TOP-QUALITY WORKFORCE IS CRITICAL TO THE SUCCESS OF ANY COMPANY AND TO THE ECONOMY OF THE COMMUNITY.

In 1996, Autry Technology Center began a series of meetings and discussions with area businesses and industry leaders based on the belief that industry leaders should have a stake in developing and shaping our future workforce. Area business leaders also share the belief that in order to find effective solutions to common issues, we must all work together. This industry input has made Autry Tech’s Business and Industry Services one of the strongest in the state. If you would like to make an impact, contact Kyle Hockmeyer.

From first jobs to lifelong careers, retail launches more people into employment than any other. From the part-time sales associate at a local store on Main Street to an app-developer for a major retailer, the retail industry directly employs 29 million Americans, making it the largest private sector-employer in the economy. (According to the National Retail Federation.)  At Autry Technology Center, we’ve worked with more than 500 local businesses in our district and are focused on supporting our local industries. A strong retail industry improves our quality-of-life and economic vitality.

 

Here’s what we know when it comes to retail:

  1. The retail sector experiences the second-highest turnover rate of any industry, as high as 81% in 2018.
  2. Regular training that is effective, engaging and specific can significantly lower retail turnover rates.
  3. Lower turnover means more sales, higher margins, improved client experiences and lower recruiting costs – a.k.a. more money for your business!

 

Here’s how you and Autry Technology Center can define and enhance what makes you exceptional for the success of your company. The driving force of Oklahoma CareerTech system is to develop and grow a top quality workforce and set our future generations up for success. We look forward to partnering with your business!
