GREENVILLE, S.C. — Bi-Lo here, which operates 207 stores in four states, has renewed its contract for the selection and hiring solution from Kronos, Chelmsford, mass.

The system is designed to identify candidates who are likely to perform better and stay longer, said Kronos. Candidates are pooled so that multiple locations have access to qualified candidates.

Once an applicant is hired, the system allows Bi-Lo send offer letters automatically, sharing data with Bi-Lo’s HR system, and enable many on-boarding activities to occur remotely. Bi-Lo chose the system "because we felt its assessments would give us an edge over the competition as well as for the obvious cost savings and paper reduction benefits," said David J. Gill, compensation, HRIS manager, BI-LO, in a statement, adding, "We’ve been happy with the results."
