ShopKo Stores, Inc. Selects Unicru to Optimize Workforce Selection; Fortune 500 Company Partners with Unicru to Increase Hiring Process Efficiencies.
"Advanced selection science was what first compelled us to examine Unicru's hiring management system," said Sara Stensrud, vice president of training and development at ShopKo. "And once we realized the depth of Unicru's retail industry knowledge, the product's ease-of-use by both applicant and hiring managers, and Unicru's impact on overall business quality and productivity, we were sold. We're already seeing great results with the system and the Unicru staff has been helpful and easy to work with."
Unicru's Total Workforce Acquisition solution will help ShopKo lower hiring and labor costs by presenting only the best candidates -- with insight into their strengths and weaknesses -- to hiring management, streamlining tax credit capture, and minimizing the payment of non-qualifying unemployment claims, among other benefits. ShopKo will implement Unicru's customer service, dependability and management assessments that focus on the key personality traits and skills associated with job success in the company's sales positions.
"Unicru does not simply offer technology to automate the hiring process, but we pair with it selection science tools that allow our customers to hire only those candidates with desirable behavioral traits," said Chris Marsh, president and CEO of Unicru Inc. "Through our data analytics tools we then continuously measure for improvements in areas such as tenure, productivity and sales performance. Partnering with Unicru will allow ShopKo to reinforce its company mission by increasing the quality of their employees which will lead to improved customer service quality."
