Foot Locker extends partnership with HR solutions provider

DALLAS — PeopleAnswers has extended its software licensing agreement for Foot Locker, Inc. to use the PeopleAnswers HR solution in its 2,500 stores across the United States representing Foot Locker, Lady Foot Locker, Kids Foot Locker, Champs Sports and Footaction.

“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 while also driving greater efficiency and accuracy in our store recruitment process,” said Foot Locker’s VP talent management, Robert Perkins. “PeopleAnswers automates this step with technology that is easier and more efficient for our managers.”

After completing a successful pilot program in 600 stores, Foot Locker will now use the software for pre-employment screening and employee selection for its hourly and management positions across all U.S. locations, bringing the total to 2,500 stores. As a result, Foot Locker will create a consistent, automated process that is more efficient for store managers and will help improve hiring decision quality, employee retention, productivity and customer service.

Foot Locker will use the intuitive, web-based PeopleAnswers assessment to prescreen job candidates who share many of the same behaviors. PeopleAnswers is integrated with Foot Locker’s applicant tracking system for a seamless employee recruiting process and includes a guide for interview content and employee development.
