Industry Knowledge

People for Retail is guided by one overriding principle: finding that right person for your company. Our strength is our talent for matching skills and personalities with job requirements so you get the best candidates to choose from.

Our principal, Karen Stout, has over 38 years of experience in the retail industry, with the last 20 years serving in Senior Management roles. She has worked in four distinct retail channels: Specialty & Conventional Grocery, Drug Store, and Warehouse Club.

During her long career, Ms. Stout has not only hired for most management positions, but has actually worked in these roles herself. She has personally recruited for all levels in the organization, and knows the specifications and skill sets required for each position.

It’s this depth of experience that enables People for Retail to find you the best candidate. Our knowledge of the skill sets required for a position enables us to quickly sort through a group of candidates so that we can present you the best fit for your requirements.

Ms. Stout has hired and developed teams.  She has created processes for operational improvements as well as for developing/training employees. Ms. Stout is familiar with these roles and positions from the ground up; if she hasn’t specifically done a job, she’s most likely hired for it!
