U.K. retailer Sainsbury’s plans to deploy a workforce management solution to control its labor costs and improve workforce productivity.
The solution, from Chelmsford, Mass.-based Kronos, Inc. will manage the time and attendance and scheduling of more than 150,000 employees in more than 1,000 locations across the country.
The decision was driven by Sainsbury’s commitment to being a “Great Place to Work.” The grocer said it required a workforce management solution to support employees by offering a consistent, fair, and equitable approach to working practices.
“Kronos software will help us manage and allocate our labor in store and pay our colleagues more effectively, while allowing us to benefit from simplifying our current processes,” said Rob Fraser, IT director, Sainsbury’s. “Improved information will make it easier to provide our customers with fantastic service.”
Prior to selecting Kronos, Sainsbury’s managed time and attendance and scheduling through a blend of manual and partially automated processes.
Kronos solutions are designed to enable organizations to control labor costs, minimize compliance risk, and improve workforce productivity.
