"As we go into our 125th year in business, we were looking for a partner that could help us better shape and grow our existing successful teams. Infor's scalable solution can quickly identify key attributes we look for in team members, which will streamline hiring and ultimately reduce employee turnover," said Mark Oliver, Modell's Sporting Goods senior vice president of human resources.
Modell's Sporting Goods, America's oldest, family-owned and operated sporting goods retailer, has selected Infor PeopleAnswers Talent Science to improve employee selection, development, and succession planning for its chain of over 150 stores throughout the Northeast.
Available via the cloud, Infor PeopleAnswers Talent Science uses science, technology, and analytics to predictively link behavioral data to real business outcomes, helping companies improve business performance, reduce turnover, and optimize the HR process.
Modell's Sporting Goods was looking for a more modern solution to hiring, and wanted to replace previous paper-driven processes with dependable online technology. Its teams will benefit from employee development tools that are customized to every individual, and provide built-in coaching expertise to help them improve performance and develop into a maximum producer.
"The ability to harness data and translate it directly to hiring can enable improvement of the HR function and, in a retail setting, there is real opportunity for hiring and talent management to drive business performance," said Gab Goncalves, Infor senior vice president of HCM strategy.
