With this association, 24×7 Learning plans a complete e-learning-based training solution to help the retail industry cut training costs drastically, according to a company press release.
Anil Chhikara, president, 24×7 Learning, said, “With training, educated but currently unemployed graduates can be groomed into ideal candidates for roles in modern organised retail formats. Tapping into this chunk of educated youth and developing their skills can result in tremendous cost savings in the retail sector over a period of time.”

With this partnership, we are looking forward to the Indian retail sector leveraging Retail Academy’s tools and resources, delivered on LearnTrak – 24×7 Learning’s LMS, for optimal organisation learning.”
