Headway, the retail industry’s preferred hiring and employment solutions provider, will be leveraging its GPS Recruitment Technology, Center for Operational and Recruitment Excellence (CORE) and its proprietary database of over 1.5 million candidates to power the sourcing, screening and acquisition of talent and employment solutions for its retail clients.
"Our ultra-efficient hiring and employment solution helps retailers reduce costs while acquiring superior retail talent. And, by eliminating field hiring and HR burdens our retailers are able to focus more on sales, merchandising and customer service activities, not HR" stated Debbie Brown, Executive Vice President of Headway Corporate Resources.
Headway also reported that many retailers will be utilizing the company’s Adaptive Payroll® Employer-of-Record program. This program takes a retailers’ existing, or self-recruited, field workers and shifts all of HR, administration, benefits and payroll processing requirements to Headway, which performs them more economically. Headway’s Adaptive Payroll® provides better accuracy, control and cost-savings by eliminating the internal resources required to manage and administer the many HR aspects of employing seasonal and field workers.
