Amid the ever-increasing omnichannel nature of our retail experiences, it can be difficult to know how best to solve customer issues when they arise. It isn't as simple as just having great person-to-person customer service anymore.

Collectively the four of them go deep on: – The main drivers of customer loyalty (the answers could surprise you) – How these drivers differ by generation – What these differences imply for our retail contact centers and their employees – And, most importantly, how to transform our contact centers from the cost centers they were in the past into bona fide revenue generating functions that drive long-term value It is a conversation sure to shed light on issues you didn't even know existed and to challenge your thinking about best practices, and one that will leave you with a greater sense of urgency around investing in customer service, the right way.

Prioritizing organizational change management (OCM) and involving your people in the process is table stakes. For any successful implementation, there's a significant reliance on end-user adoption, as they're the ones who will be directly impacted by the change at the end of the day. How do you get individuals aligned and on board? How are you communicating with them? Are people willing to adapt? If not, why? What are their concerns? Are you listening to them?  In this episode of Taking Stock, I'm joined by Eileen George, a principal consultant with Clarkston and a leader in organizational change management, as we discuss driving transformation through OCM.

Competing, simultaneous political events on Saturday - a major abortion rights protest and a Donald Trump rally - have led to fears of unrest in downtown Austin. APD Chief Joe Chacon has reiterated that his department's policies have changed since the George Floyd protests in the summer of 2020, and pledges that his officers will keep public safety top of mind. Half of the Austin City Council's members could face an unexpected fall election, pending the outcome of an ongoing lawsuit. A contrast in school districts: Austin ISD students stage a mass walkout in defense of reproductive rights, while Eanes ISD creates a public database to track challenges over library books from offended parents. People continue flocking into Austin as they have for decades - but you might be surprised to learn that there are 15 U.S. metros currently outranking Austin in newcomer growth, including Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio. Retail space rent in the South Congress neighborhood has reached $150 per square foot - prices that are similar to storefronts in Manhattan. Schematics for the new Meta tower, which when completed will be Austin's new tallest building, are unveiled. Wait times for TSA security at Austin Bergstrom International Airport have dropped lately - but the summer travel season has yet to really begin. Austin FC are away this weekend at Real Salt Lake - match begins at 8:30pm Central and will be carried by ESPN Plus. Don't forget to look for this weekend's total lunar eclipse, between about 8:30 Sunday night and 1:50 Monday morning - maximum eclipse at 11:11pm Sunday. And hot weather continues - mid-90's Friday and Saturday, 97 on Sunday, 100 on Monday.

The RBI's unscheduled hike in repo rates on 5 May confirmed that the central bank was behind the curve in controlling inflation and now new data released by the National Statistical Office on 12 May shows exactly how behind. Retail inflation in India soared to its highest since May 2014 to 7.79 percent in April, almost double the RBI's mandate of 4 percent and above the bank's estimates for the fourth straight month. Here are a few numbers to indicate the current state of inflation: food price inflation is at a 17-month high of 8.38 percent, rural inflation is at a staggering 8-year high at 8.38 percent and urban inflation at 7.09 percent is at its highest in 18-months. While the war in Ukraine and consequent rise in fuel prices is a significant factor in the spike, April's high inflation, according to media reports, is not one-off. So what is driving this inflation? who will be pinched the most, and what corrective measures can the central bank implement to control inflation?

As consumers deal with rising interest rates, persistent inflation, and a desire to get outside in the ever changing COVID environment, the question is, what does this all mean for the future of eCommerce growth?-----Transcript-----Welcome to Thoughts on the Market. I'm Andrew Rubin, Morgan Stanley's Latin America Retail and eCommerce Analyst. Along with my colleagues bringing you a variety of perspectives, I'll be talking about the outlook for global e-commerce in the years ahead. It's Thursday, May 12th, at 2 p.m. in New York. Amid rising interest rates and persistent inflation, we've seen quite a lot of debate about the health of the consumer and the effect on eCommerce. If you couple those factors with consumers' desire to return to in-person experiences as COVID recedes, you can see why we've fielded a lot of questions about what this all means for eCommerce growth. To answer this question, Morgan Stanley's Internet, eCommerce and Retail teams around the world drew on both regional and company level data to fashion what we call, the Morgan Stanley Global eCommerce Model. And what we found was that the forward looking picture may be more robust than some might think. While stay at home trends from COVID certainly drove outsized eCommerce growth from 2019 to 2021, we found the trend should stay stronger for longer, with eCommerce set to grow from $3.3 trillion currently to $5.4 trillion in 2026, a compound annual growth rate of 10%. And there are a few reasons for that. First, the shift toward online retail had already been in place well before the COVID acceleration. To put some numbers behind that, eCommerce volumes represented 21% of overall retail sales globally in 2021. That's excluding autos, restaurants and services. So, while the rise of eCommerce during the first year of COVID in 2020 is easily explained, the fact that growth persisted in 2021, even on a historically difficult comparison, is evidence, in our view, of real behavioral shift to shopping online. Another factor that supports our multi year growth thesis is a trend of broad based eCommerce gains, even for the highest penetration countries and categories. As you might expect, China and the U.S. represent a sizable 64% of global eCommerce volumes, and these countries are the top drivers of our consolidated market estimates. But we see higher growth rates for lower penetrated regions, such as Latin America, Southeast Asia and Africa, as well as categories like grocery and personal care. Interestingly, however, in our findings, no country or vertical represented a single outsized growth driver. Looking at South Korea, which is the global leader in e-commerce, we expect an increase from 37% of retail sales in 2021 to 45% in 2026. For the electronics category worldwide, which leads all other major categories with 38% penetration, we forecast penetration reaching 43% in 2026. And while there are some headwinds due to logistics in certain countries and verticals, we believe these barriers will continue to come down. Another encouraging sign is that globally, we have yet to see a ceiling for eCommerce penetration. We identify three fundamental factors that underpin our growth forecasts and combine for what we see as a powerful set of multi-year secular drivers. First, logistics. We see a big push towards shorter delivery times and lower cost or free delivery. The convenience of delivery to the door is a top differentiating factor of eCommerce versus in-store shopping. And faster speeds can unlock new eCommerce categories and purchase occasions. Second, connectivity. Internet usage is shifting to mobile, and smartphones and apps are increasingly the gateway to consumers, particularly in emerging markets. And these consumers, on average, skew younger and over-index for time spent on the mobile internet. And third is Marketplace. We see a continued shift from first party owned inventory to third party marketplace platforms, connecting buyers and sellers. For investors, it's important to note that global eCommerce does not appear to be a winner-take-all market. And this implies opportunity for multiple company level beneficiaries. In particular, investors should look at companies with forecast share gains, exposure to higher growth categories, and discounted trading multiples versus history. Thanks for listening.

How to grow your retail portfolio and syndications? We will review the career of Aaron Zucker, founder and principal of Zucker Investment Group, they purchased 22 deals in the last 40 months through syndications. What does he look for when purchasing a retail property? What are some of the lessons learned so far? You can read this entire interview here: bit.ly/3w5RwO2 How did you scale so fast? Let's go over your journey in the retail space and break it down to about every two months since you decided to start your company. In the beginning I moved into my parents basement with a six month old. That was interesting to say the least, with no portfolio and not much of a plan.

The mantra about our organization is that we're super aggressive, and we are, but when we look in the microcosm of a specific acquisition, it's usually pretty conservative. I'm a one man band at this point, I continue doing my thing, posting on social media saying we're looking for deals, hitting the phones hard, following up with the brokerage community, calling sellers, whatever it takes to procure something.
