Minimize Turnover.
Maximize Talent.

Increase frontline employee retention and create an internal pool of middle-wage candidates.
Leverage your tax-deductible tuition assistance dollars to reduce turnover and develop your employees. 

There is a talent crisis.

Two problems cost retail companies in the US more than $40B each year:

1. Turnover of frontline employees. 76% leave their jobs within the first 120 days.

2. Lack of qualified candidates for entry-level tech jobs. 75% of employers say they can't find people internally or externally for these jobs. They are considered unfillable.


Escalate is the Solution.

At Escalate, we solve the talent crisis for retail corporations.

Your employees gain new skills that you can leverage in high-need tech roles of the future. At the same time, you increase retention and build a pipeline of new entry-level talent more effectively. 

Year 1

Frontline workers receive 8-10 hours/week of asynchronous, cohort-based, online training for roles on your tech team. They receive support that helps them get to work every day, including access to social workers and coaches.


Year 2

On-the-job training and learning in your hardest to fill tech roles (3 months). Upon completion of on-the-job training, employees are prepared for full-time roles on your tech team (or outplacement).



  • increases entry-level employee retention to 12 months

  • creates a diverse talent pool for tech roles in your company, and

  • meets your needs as employees train in off hours in a cohort-based, asynchronous model.


Our Innovative Technology

Escalate provides tailored candidate selection based on employee aptitude using AI, allowing employers to identify their hidden talent.

Our support goes beyond learning and encompasses the wraparound services that frontline employees need to be successful.
