Fashion retailer New Look has selected workforce management solutions from Kronos Incorporated to maximize labor productivity and increase sales conversion rates in its 670 stores in the UK, Ireland, France, and Belgium. Kronos will optimize the scheduling and manage the time and attendance of 16,000 full- and part-time staff and align labor to demand in each store.

Kronos will use a combination of historical sales data, predicted sales figures, shopper numbers, and essential store tasks to determine the optimum staffing schedules for each store, matching labor requirements to individual store demand. This will ensure that workforce productivity is maximised, labor costs are controlled, and customer service is optimized.

A key anticipated benefit is to improve conversion rates and drive profitable sales.

Driving factors in the selection included Kronos’ international expertise, proven customer successes, and the company’s comprehensive retail industry expertise.

In addition to scheduling and time and attendance applications, New Look will use the revolutionary new time clock, the KronosInTouch, the first time clock built for today’s workforce, which features an unrivalled user experience, robust employee self-service, and cloud-ready capabilities.

Selecting Kronos for its retail stores has reinforced New Look’s relationship with Kronos, as 1,000 employees at New Look’s distribution center have used Kronos for time and attendance since 1997.
