The Wall Street Journal's Marketwatch is reporting that Billerica Road-based Kronos has closed a deal to provide hiring solutions for Stage Stores Inc., a nationwide apparel, accessory, cosmetic and footwear retailer.
Stage Stores vice president of benefits, compensation and HR administration Cindy Kothmann called the Chelmsford-based company the market leader in hiring software.
"With Kronos, we will be able to
easily identify candidates with a customer service knack," said Kothmann. "The improved
selection process will have a domino effect on our organization:
happy, skilled employees lead to satisfied customers, and satisfied
customers lead to improved sales."
Kronos is no stranger to the Stage Stores chain, having already provided the company its time and attendance hardware and software.
"We are delighted to be partnering with
Stage Stores, who has built such a strong presence in the communities
it serves by delivering highly desirable name brands with excellent
value," said Nick Ordon, Kronos vice president and general manager, hiring
solutions. "As a Stage Stores business partner, we
are happy to contribute to its mission by providing a workforce
management solution that automates the hiring of a highly competent
and motivated staff."
