David’s Bridal selects PeopleAnswers’ HR solution

Dallas -- PeopleAnswers announced a software licensing agreement for David’s Bridal to use the PeopleAnswers HR-focused business solution to improve in-store sales performance with higher quality team members.

“Our goal is to provide an outstanding, one-stop shopping experience for brides and for every special occasion, and it’s our consultants and other team members who make it happen,” said David Latta, VP operations, David’s Bridal, which operates more than 300 stores. “PeopleAnswers is sophisticated, science-based technology in the form of an easy-to-learn and use tool that helps us hire and keep top associates across all of our locations who continue delivering the personal service our customers expect.”

David’s Bridal will use PeopleAnswers’ intuitive, cloud-based desktop and mobile software platforms in all of its specialty retail stores to prescreen and hire all in-store full-time, part-time and seasonal positions including store manager, wedding consultants and alterations. The assessment process includes custom Performance Profiles for each position and a single prescreen behavioral evaluation that determines best-fit candidates prior to a formal interview.

The software’s ability to compare candidates with multiple profiles is designed to determine a future career path that helps managers select the candidates with the highest probability for long-term success.

By using PeopleAnswers, David’s Bridal will move its paper-based employee recruiting process online. Managers will also use PeopleAnswers as a guide for candidate interview questions, employee development and succession planning.
