Stage Stores Streamlines HR With Kronos

Stage Stores, Inc., a retailer of apparel, accessories, cosmetics, and footwear serving small and midsize communities, chose Kronos Incorporated to efficiently source, screen, and select best-fit job candidates.

The solution will help Stage Stores – operating under the Bealls, Goody’s, Palais Royal, Peebles, and Stage trade names – to standardize the hiring process across its more than 870 locations and select associates who will help drive sales and build customer loyalty.

Stage Stores is rapidly growing with more than 14,000 associates across 40 states. The Kronos selection and hiring solution will provide Stage Stores with a larger applicant pool by allowing candidates to apply for positions at multiple locations within the same geographic area with just one application.
The Kronos solution will help store managers quickly filter and sort job applications to identify qualified and experienced candidates who are likely to stay with Stage Stores longer, be more productive, and deliver on the retailer’s promise to provide exceptional service.

With Kronos, Stage Stores will also expedite the onboarding process, eliminating wasted time on paperwork. Pre-populated, new-hire paperwork will be generated electronically before an employee’s first day on the job. This will allow new hires to hit the sales floor faster, keeping the focus on store objectives and offering superior customer service instead of non-productive administrative work.

Stage Stores has been a long-time user of the Kronos time and attendance solution in several distribution centers.

“With Kronos, we will be able to easily identify candidates with a customer service knack," says  Cindy Kothmann, vice president, benefits, compensation and HR administration, Stage Stores. "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 was clearly the market leader and we are confident that we can build a workforce that will deliver on our promise to provide our customers with a superior shopping experience,” she adds.
