GameStop focuses on seasonal employee success


Grapevine, Texas – Like many other retailers, GameStop Corp. employs seasonal hires for the holiday season. Unlike many other retailers, GameStop focuses on skill growth and professional success for its 17,000-23,000 annual seasonal hires.

As part of a program called “Grow and Go,” GameStop focuses on helping seasonal employees develop professional skills such as relationship building, customer service and entrepreneurship. The retailer then encourages seasonal employees to use these skills to move forward in their careers, elsewhere or at GameStop. For example, Matt Koch, GameStop Midwest market VP, began his career with the retailer as a seasonal employee.

Grow and Go is not GameStop’s only program focused on employee achievement. GameStop recently announced that 40 recipients have been selected to receive $100,000 in grants as part of the company’s “Power to the Scholars” scholarship program. GameStop introduced Power to the Scholars earlier this year in partnership with Scholarship America Inc. The program invited employees of the GameStop family of specialty retail brands and their dependents to apply for the college scholarships, which is an extension of GameStop’s employee charitable foundation, the Gamer Fund.
