PeopleAnswers and New York & Company, Inc. announced a software licensing agreement for the specialty apparel chain with more than 500 stores nationwide to use the PeopleAnswers HR-focused business solution to recommend employee candidates who can guide their customers to make smart fashion purchase decisions.
 
“Effectively hiring, developing and retaining top talent is critical for us to win as a business,” said Faeth Bradley, executive vice president, Human Resources at New York & Company. “Our continued success will require having the best leaders and associates in all of our stores.”
 
New York & Company will use the intuitive, cloud-based PeopleAnswers software on its desktop and mobile platforms to evaluate, select and hire for all store positions. Starting initially with 200 store locations, the rollout will include district leaders, store leaders, assistant managers and sales associates. The company plans to ultimately expand to all stores upon proven success of this 200-store launch.
 
“Our customers come into our stores to find modern wear-to-work solutions that help them look great and feel good,” said Kevin Finnegan, executive vice president, Global Sales at New York & Company. “As a proven, cutting-edge solution used across the retail industry, PeopleAnswers will help us staff our stores with proactive, service-oriented managers and associates who will help our customers feel confident, put-together, attractive, and fashion-right.”
 
The software will identify the Behavioral DNA of existing staff to create custom Performance Profiles for each role. Then it will use unique Predictive Talent Analytics to compare applicants against these profiles allowing the company’s leaders to identify the best-fit candidates with traits similar to the most successful people in each role. The unique ability to compare candidates with multiple profiles to determine a future career path helps hiring managers select the candidates with the highest chance for long-term success.
 
New York & Company will now have a consistent employee selection process across all stores that will result in better quality hiring decisions while also helping managers work more efficiently. The valuable data gathered during the hiring process will also be critical in onboarding, and for identifying and developing employees to progress to other positions within the company.
 
“PeopleAnswers has a proven reputation for helping retailers improve retention and revenue as well as build their service-oriented brand by selecting the right team members consistently companywide,” said Gabriel Goncalves, CEO and president, PeopleAnswers.
