Trading companies suffer from falling customer demand A recent trend survey conducted by the German Trade Association (HDE) among around 700 trading companies shows that, due to the increasing spread of the coronavirus, many medium-sized trading companies in particular are suffering from falling customer frequencies and declining demand. In the HDE survey, nearly two-thirds of companies currently report declining customer demand due to the coronavirus. As a result, the retail sector has been hit by massive falls in demand. The exception is the suppliers of everyday goods, such as grocers and drugstores, which are seeing an increased demand for individual products. According to the traders, the negative effects will increase significantly. For example, three-quarters of the companies surveyed expect customer demand to decline in the coming weeks, almost half of which will see significant declines. On the other hand, the demand-enhancing effects in the food sector are likely to subside. With the exception of trade in everyday goods, retailers are mainly talking about declining customer frequencies. Slightly more than half of the respondents even feel a significant decline in customer numbers. PBSReport / Germany

Exertis to celebrate International Women’s Day Exertis has announced its participation in International Women’s Day (IWD) on 8th March as part of its wider commitment to fostering an inclusive and diverse culture across the business. It will celebrate IWD with a number of planned events including networking sessions and panel discussions on the topic of diversity and inclusion. Overall Exertis UK has 40 per cent of women in its workforce and almost 33 per cent employed in its logistic centres. Exertis will be running a networking and panel discussion on IWD to celebrate and create awareness of how inclusion, talent, and diversity can bring both personal and organisational success. Liz Greenwood, Exertis UK, IT director said, “technology is a profession where you will never get bored and you can see how it can reshape business and society. It is fascinating. More senior executives need to actively sponsor programmes in schools with teachers and pupils. Maths and Science are not the only paths to IT – Business Analysis, Service Desk Management, and other disciplines require different skills.” Lisa Bird, Exertis, Head of Customer Excellence added, “IWD is an opportunity to recognise women’s achievements from all walks of life. It’s important everyone has an equal chance to make the most of their talent and capabilities. I want to be judged on my output and not my gender.”
