Retail (Male) 2020

The retail benchmark represents a balance of newer and more traditional retail companies focused on a range of different retail products. Retail companies are often characterized by significant numbers of casual or part-time people and widely dispersed teams, stores and headquarters in many cases. This benchmark only includes Men employees. We use woman and man because most of our customers are using binary options.
