Retail sales positions often receive a deluge of applications, making it difficult for employers to adequately assess each applicant. This is especially relevant where significant applicant travel times are involved.
The RSS helps select the most appropriate candidates for the job and quickly screens applicants who do not fit your specific requirements prior to committing further time and budget to additional testing or interviewing.
The RSS allows your company to remain in control of the recruitment process, and is especially valuable during seasonal hiring peaks, when cost-effective, time-efficient alternatives can greatly increase productivity.
Despite being an essential process, hiring new employees can cost companies much more than necessary. Within the retail industry, numerous job applications combined with the lack of a comprehensive screening technique can result in superfluous resources spent filtering through applicants. The RSS will allow your company to accurately identify the right people for the right role, whilst reducing the amount of time and money invested in the recruitment process.
To determine whether your current method of hiring is reducing profitability in your company, use the RSS Hiring Calculator to ascertain the amount spent on traditional hiring each year.

Applicants’ results are compared to these local benchmarks to provide a shortlist of the most suitable candidates.

The RSS has been designed to reduce the assessment set-up time whilst still allowing the greatest possible validity.
Immediate access to the shortlist allows you to respond as soon as a desirable candidate applies, thereby minimising the chance of applicants seeking alternative employers.
