Party City Selects the Most Qualified Candidates with Infor
Infor, a leading provider of industry-specific cloud applications, today announced that Party City, a leading party goods retailer in North America with more than 900 stores, has selected Infor Talent Science to streamline hiring process and select the most qualified candidates. Infor® Talent Science™ leverages cutting edge technology to deliver talent management insights that are deep, yet easy to understand. The solution combines powerful analytics and behavioral science to create a technology platform that dramatically increases HR’s business impact.

“We decided to partner with Infor to identify the key success traits of our top employees, so we could make our workforce more productive,” said Jim Viola, vice president, Party City. “By bringing modern technology into our hiring practices, we’re able to gain greater insight and develop best practices so our teams can provide a superior customer experience.”

Infor Talent Science delivers insight that is customized into predictive models that assist hiring managers to better select, retain, and develop the right talent across the entire employee life cycle. This easily integrated and scalable solution evaluates 39 behavioral, cognitive, and cultural traits to expose a candidate’s Behavioral DNA®. The pre-employment assessment software allows users to compare and contrast the characteristics of a candidate against the attributes of their strongest performers, which is built in a Performance Profile. That Performance Profile is based on incumbent assessment results and performance data. Once established, the Performance Profile becomes the benchmark for defining success in a given role, providing a consistent structure and a common language for evaluating people.

Beyond the selection process, organizations can use the gathered data for comprehensive insight throughout the employee lifecycle. Hiring managers can receive easy-to-understand behavioral data that they can use to uncover employee strengths, deliver high impact coaching, establish short-term and long-term goals, and develop a strategy for career path planning.

“Regardless of the goal, from improving customer service to increasing sales, hiring the right talent is key to driving those results,” said Corey Tollefson, senior vice president and general manager, Infor Retail. “We’re fusing cutting edge technology into our retail-specific applications so our customers can create business strategies that work. Using Infor Talent Science, retailers can reduce employee turnover, increase sales per hour averages by hiring more capable candidates, and streamline the hiring process by using predictive models.”
