Dallas -- HR solution-provider PeopleAnswers and Canada-based Town Shoes, which sells under Town Shoes and The Shoe Co., announced Tuesday that Town Shoes will use the PeopleAnswers pre-employment and employee selection solution in its 124 stores across Canada.
“As a growing retailer in a very competitive industry, it’s critical to have a standard – and efficient – hiring process across all of our stores to improve the quality of our hires and maintain our unique store brands,” said Yvonne Faulkner, VP sales and operations, Town Shoes.
Town Shoes will use the PeopleAnswers assessment test to prescreen and hire manager and associate job candidates who share many of the same behavioral traits with its current strong performers. With candidates taking the assessment test, Town Shoes expects to see higher employee retention and sales. Hiring managers will also use PeopleAnswers as a guide for interview content and employee development.
