Most job-seekers like to list skills on their resume. In fact, most experts suggest listing skills on your resume. The problem with simply including a skill set is that the reader has no reason to believe you. You could say that you’re an expert in hiring, training, sales management, payroll control, visual presentation, and loss prevention, but that doesn’t mean the reader will trust you just because you say it. That’s why it’s important to back up those statements with proof in the way of accomplishments.
Most people think of accomplishments in terms of financial results like the following:

Grew sales 6% per year between 2007 and 2010.
Surpassed sales target by 8% in 2010.
Increased average transaction from $22.00 to $27.50 in 6 months.

Those types of accomplishments are very important to include. However, any type of impact you had on the company can be stated as an achievement, and that can help build trust with the reader.
