Hudson's hosts HFA Leadership Immersion Experience

SANFORD, Fla. – The Home Furnishings Assn. (HFA) facilitated its fourth Leadership Immersion Experience for its Next Generation Now community earlier this month, with HFA Retailer of the Year and Furniture Today Top 100 retailer Josh Hudson hosting 12 next-generation retailers at Hudson’s Furniture in Sanford, Fla.

Immersion participants learned about Hudson’s daily operations and the company’s philosophy. Additionally, they were informed about key performance indicators, pricing and margins, salesmanship, human relations, compensation, customer service, marketing, warehouse safety and more.

HFA’s Leadership Immersion Experiences are sponsored by Storis, a provider of retail software solutions for the furniture, bedding, appliance and electronics industries.

The Leadership Immersion Experience was created in 2015 and has become one of the HFA’s premiere education programs. Next Generation Now members have visited best-in-class retailers such as RC Willey in Salt Lake City, El Dorado Furniture in Miami, and American Furniture Warehouse in Englewood, Colo.

“Our Leadership Immersion Experience keeps growing and gaining in popularity,” said Sharron Bradley, CEO, HFA. “Each event gets glowing reviews and the participants walk away with a greater understanding of everything from operations and marketing to business philosophies and human resources.”
