Wal-Mart Stores Inc is helping to launch a three-year training program across China with the aim of producing more than 20,000 vocational school graduates to meet the increasing demand of the retail job market.
Wal-Mart China will team up with the China Chain Store and Franchise Association to initiate the Future Retail Star Training program, which starts in August.
Wal-Mart China has donated 5 million yuan ($812,000) to provide training with focus on customer service, marketing and chain store operations to 100 vocational schools.
“The retail sector in China maintains a high speed of growth and is in urgent need of more professionals amid sluggish sales growth and rising labor costs,” said Guo Geping, president of CCFA.
