Tempur-Pedic Launches Retail Sales Training Campaign
November 22, 2016,
NEW YORK—Tempur-Pedic has launched an aggressive training program for retail sales associates that focuses on the best ways to select a mattress.
Already, Tempur-Pedic staffers have trained more than 9,900 retail sales associates as part of this initiative, with a goal of reaching as many as 20,000 sales associates by the first quarter of 2017, the company said.
In a new video series, Tempur-Pedic is demonstrating how its propriety Tempur material works and why it’s different than its competitors. The company says its key differentiators includes material that responds to an individual’s temperature, weight and shape for personalized comfort and support, and its ability to reduce motion transfer for undisturbed sleep.
