Energy Efficiency for Australian Retailers
Retail Buys the Future is a program developed by the National Retail Association (NRA), as a one-stop-shop to ensure all Australian retailers have access to the latest information and resources so together we can minimise our industry’s environmental footprint.
In 2014, the National Retail Association (NRA) was engaged to gather industry intelligence for the Queensland Government to inform funding investment for vocational and educational training (VET). The research activity undertaken by the NRA received direct feedback from more than 450 retail businesses across Queensland, representing in excess of 18,000 employees. This research has produced key insights into the current skills and training priorities of the retail sector.

The National Retail Association is proud to partner with our colleagues at the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) and Beyond Blue to give our industry a heads up about mental health in the workplace.
From absences to lost productivity and compensations claims, the hidden cost of poor mental health in Australia’s workplaces has been valued at $10.9 billion dollars a year.
But a small investment could change all that. For every dollar spent on mental health, your business could see an ROI of up $2.30.
Over 2015-2016, we’ll be encouraging all our members and the wider industry to join us in developing a tailored mental health action plan for your business.
Whichever way you look at it, investing in workplace mental health is good business.
