Human Resources

People power retail. Retail workplaces that help their teams shine, standout.

RCC Retailer Survey on Masking

RCC asked over 40 retailers representing more than 6,000 storefronts to share their policies on mask rules as provincial mandates continue to lift across the county. For those retailers who are no longer requiring masks or planning to no longer require masks of associates, over 95% of respondents will encourage/support staff if they choose to wear masks even if they are not required to do so. And 48% will maintain any messaging (signs or otherwise) indicating that customers may/should continue to wear masks but that they are not required to do so.
