In 2010, national athletic footwear and apparel chain Foot Locker needed to increase store performance and improve the positive impact of employees on their customers’ experiences. To achieve these goals it was deemed crucial to improve the hiring and retention of its high performers. Foot Locker partnered with Infor on the journey to tap into a discipline that is gaining traction across HR — predictive analytics. With one million applications received yearly, Foot Locker now uses an online assessment for its candidates that assigns “fit scores” indicating how closely a candidate’s behavior lines up with the optimal job profile. End result? Better hires more able to deliver great experiences for the customers. Learn how you too can leverage predictive analytics to build your own “winning team.”
