Store managers can get out of the recruitment business

Store managers aren’t recruiters, but in many retail organizations, they’re still tasked with recruitment for their locations. Harver’s automation engine offloads tedious, repetitive admin tasks up until the hiring decision. That gives store managers more time to do what they do best – driving their stores’ business performance.

Multi-location hiring makes the most of qualified applicants

Why reject a qualified applicant at one location when there’s a hiring need at another? With Harver, you can route candidates efficiently based on hiring needs at nearby locations and candidate availability.

You gain the speed to acquire the new skills you need

As you become a more multi-channel retailer, Harver supports your search for new skills by enabling easy testing then moving applicants from “apply” to “offer” in as little as 24 hours. You get the top candidates before your rivals.

You can choose from a broader set of demographics

With Harver, you can widen your search to attract more non-traditional candidates, including older and disabled workers, and increase diversity and inclusion.

Better informed candidates drastically decrease employee turnover

Retail turnover is a problem that’s exacerbated when candidates don’t know enough about what the job entails. Harver’s realistic job preview enables candidates to self-select, while simultaneously providing you with best-fit candidates based on data. This unique two-way matching methodology drastically decreases employee turnover.

You can deliver a branded hiring experience that retains your best customers

Your applicants aren’t just job candidates – in many cases, they’re also your customers. That’s why you can’t afford to deliver a poor experience. Harver enables you to run a smooth, consistent, branded hiring process – even when hiring across many locations.

You get the insights to keep you in control

Your retail business performance is directly linked to your staffing situation. Our Business Intelligence suite, Harver Insights, keeps you continuously abreast of your core KPIs throughout the hiring process. You can ensure that your hiring practices are supporting your business strategy.
