Retail Research Initiatives
Facing the growing need for talented managers and the high costs of turnover in the competitive retail industry, it is extremely important that HRM programs are able to identify and attract potential high performers and prevent the loss of these talented managers. Retailers' demand for bright and motivated young people is heating up as retailers recognize their financial performance and long-term sustainability rely on the talents of store managers and merchandise managers. To meet demands for structured study on retail talent development, the David F. Miller Retail Center has initiated series of studies related to human resource management issues in retailing.
- Students' Retail Career Choice Decisions Study
- National Survey of HR practices for Retail Talent Development
- Retail Internship Study

The David F. Miller Retail Center publishes the Retail Report and Retailing Management newsletters, informational booklets, the Florida Retail Index, a quarterly report on the outlook for Florida retailers and more.
