Anita UK hosted two one-day training events for Rigby and Peller during Breast Cancer Awareness month, as part of the retailer’s commitment to ensure that they have specialist trained staff in all of their stores for post-surgical customers. 25 staff were trained during the two sessions on a number of highly relevant topics including care and recovery after surgery, creating bra wardrobes for post-surgical ladies, special requirements for ladies with lymphedema, breast form selection and fitting techniques.
Jemma Barnes, UK Managing Director for Anita, conducted the training and said “It is always a real pleasure to work with a retailer in this way, the needs of a post-surgical lady are very specific and Anita want to ensure that we are doing all we can to enable and equip our business partners with the knowledge and skills needed to give their customers the best possible advice and service. The team at Rigby were a pleasure to work with, everyone participated fully and we were pleased to be able to present the attendees with an Anita Care certificate at the conclusion of the day.”
Rigby and Peller Training manager Dita Summerfield said “Here at Rigby & Peller we pride ourselves on offering all customers a personal Lingerie Styling service. Our Lingerie Stylists will help you understand what ‘the perfect fit’ looks like and build your lingerie wardrobe, through showing you a range of styles and different products we currently offer. As a result of Anita’s product training we are now able to create the lingerie wardrobe for all ladies, including the ones who had a breast surgery, are pregnant or breastfeeding.”
