A new, more diverse generation is taking center stage. And new technologies are changing the way people shop, buy and sell, and work.

We know that in the next 10 years, the retail workforce will be reshaped by millennials, who will make up an estimated 75 percent of all employees by 2025.

Are you and your company ready to take advantage of these changes — or will you surrender the edge to your competition?
