Foot Locker, Inc., has announced that it successfully completed a pilot of the PeopleAnswers HR solution in 600 of its stores. In advance of the upcoming peak hiring season, the chain plans to implement the software in all 2,500 stores across the U.S., including Foot Locker, Lady Foot Locker, Kids Foot Locker, Champs Sports and Footaction.
Foot Locker will use the pre-employment screening and employee selection software to create a consistent, automated process to help store managers improve the quality of hiring decisions, employee retention, productivity and customer service. In addition, Foot Locker will use the, web-based PeopleAnswers assessment tool to pre-screen job candidates who share many of the same behaviors. The PeopleAnswers solution is integrated with the Foot Locker applicant tracking system to assist in the employee recruiting process, and includes a guide for interview content and employee development.
“It is important for Foot Locker to have a consistent platform to help us hire the best people and match them to the right positions,” said Robert Perkins, VP of Talent Management for Foot Locker, in a PeopleAnswers press release, “while also driving greater efficiency and accuracy in our store recruitment process.”
