PEOPLE MASTERCLASS - CASE STUDY: People Power at River Island

30 Apr 2020, 10:40 - 11:05


River Island celebrated it’s 30th year on the high street last year. In that time, there has been an unprecedented amount of change. River Island has been able to adapt and evolve to ensure we’re as relevant today as we were 30 years ago. It’s not been easy and it’s still a very challenging market but what has allowed River to not only survive but thrive is our people. This session will focus on some of the recent ways we’ve unleashed more People Power than ever before at River Island, including:

  • Using our colleagues to model our clothes & inspire others
  • Launching an RI brand influencer programme
  • Gathering product feedback to develop predictive data models
