Bi-Lo renews agreement with Kronos

Chelmsford, Mass. -- Kronos announced that Bi-Lo has renewed its contract for Kronos’ selection and hiring solution.

The Kronos solution is designed to allow Bi-Lo to identify candidates who are likely to perform better and stay longer. Also, hiring managers spend less time weeding out unqualified applicants and are able to fill positions more quickly.

“We initially chose Kronos because we felt its assessments would give us an edge over the competition as well as for the obvious cost savings and paper reduction benefits,” said David J. Gill, compensation, HRIS manager, Bi-Lo, Greenville, S.C., which operates 207 locations in the South. “We’ve stayed with Kronos because we’ve been happy with the results, and feel the company has been a good business partner.”

Once an applicant is hired, Kronos enables such time-saving measures as sending offer letters automatically, sharing data with Bi-Lo’s HRIS system, and enabling many on-boarding activities to occur remotely.

The solution also offers Bi-Lo has visibility into its entire pool of applicants. Prior to using Kronos, a candidate would apply at one location and if that location didn’t need staff, but another location a few miles away did, there was no way to share applications or know of that need. With Kronos, candidates are pooled so that multiple locations have access to qualified candidates.
