King of Prussia, PA., September 24, 2019 – Radial, a bpost group company, today announced its plans to bring on more than 21,000 workers across North America in support of retailers fulfillment and customer care needs leading into the 2019 peak holiday season. Seasonal workers will have the opportunity to support top brands, including Cole Haan, New York & Company, rag & bone, Ashley Stewart, Beachbody, Hunter Boots, WWE and Afloral as they deliver holiday cheer to doorsteps around the world.

Consumers worldwide purchased $2.86 trillion on the web in 2018, up $430 billion over the previous year, according to retail analytics company Digital Commerce 360. This boom in ecommerce spending has created a hotbed of job opportunity in the fulfillment and customer care sectors in recent years. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are now well
over one million warehouse workers in the U.S., an increase of 87 percent since 2009, and nearly three million customer care representatives, which is projected to grow five percent by 2026. As a leading provider of fulfillment and customer care services, Radial differentiates itself through its commitment to a positive work environment for its employees and seasonal
workers. Seasonal workers enjoy the benefits of competitive hourly wages, opportunities for overtime and on-the-job training in a clean and safe work environment where treating workers with respect is Radial’s number one priority.
