By reducing the time and effort spent on administrative processes, retail managers and business owners can focus their attention on enhancing customer service and boosting sales performance.

Talent Management: Applicant Tracking and Onboarding

Axiom aids retail businesses in attracting and retaining top talent by providing sophisticated applicant tracking systems and enhancing the onboarding process. Efficient onboarding processes ensure that new hires are integrated into the retail environment smoothly, equipping them with the necessary tools and knowledge from day one.

Compliance Management

Navigating the landscape of labor laws and regulations is a critical challenge for retail businesses. Axiom simplifies compliance by ensuring that all HR processes adhere to the latest legal standards, safeguarding your business against potential fines and legal challenges.

Effective compliance management also enhances your company’s reputation, fostering trust and reliability among customers and employees alike.

Employee Engagement

Developing programs to enhance employee engagement is vital for retail businesses, as the sector is known for higher turnover rates. Axiom’s solutions focus on improving engagement through better communication, recognition, and reward systems.

Engaged employees are more likely to be productive and committed to the company’s goals through the entire employee lifecycle, leading to improved service levels and increased sales.

UKG Ready Scheduler

Scheduling is one of the most complex, dynamic, and taxing tasks vital to the successful operation of your organization and driving better business outcomes. UKG Ready Scheduler is invaluable for retail businesses, enhancing control and efficiency over employee scheduling.

By utilizing data-driven scheduling, this system leverages historical sales data and other variables like customer traffic patterns to optimize staffing levels. This HCM software considers employee preferences and availability when creating schedules, helping to ensure fairness and avoid situations where a few employees are consistently stuck with undesirable shifts.

In other words, the scheduler enhances the employee experience by offering flexibility in scheduling, acknowledging employee preferences, and promoting a fair distribution of desirable and less desirable shifts. All of these benefits can help retain employees over time.

Precise scheduling will also prevent both understaffing during peak times and overstaffing during slow periods, which helps manage labor costs effectively.

Since UKG Ready Scheduler automates many scheduling tasks, it also frees up managers’ time to focus on other important aspects of running the store.

In short, with Axiom and UKG Ready, you can:

  • Intelligently schedule workers to meet fluctuating production demands
  • Have real-time visibility into accurate people data, budget constraints and staffing demands
  • Empower your people to be more autonomous while making the scheduling process more transparent
