“I wanted to pass on that the Numensa Merchandise online training that we offered to our Junior Buyers and Buying Assistants has received outstanding feedback from both our employees and their managers. They improved their competency in understanding the fundamentals of Buying and Planning, creating strategy and negotiation skills. Thank you for all of your support throughout, it is very much appreciated!”
