Ikea to implement Kronos employee scheduling application

Software company Kronos has announced that home furnishings retailer Ikea will implement its employee scheduling application for its UK stores.

By CBR Staff Writer

The application is a fully automated employee scheduling system that analyses historical trading data, projected sales figures, labour standards, and employee availability before creating the optimum staffing schedule for each department. The system will be integrated with Ikea’s existing Kronos solution for time and attendance. Optimized scheduling will be available at all 17 IKEA stores in the UK.

Using the Kronos system, Ikea will be able to ensure that not only does it have the right number of staff over the week, but that staff are always in the right place at the right time to match the unique trading patterns of each store.

Keith Statham, managing director of Kronos UK, said: Retailers work hard to optimize everything from the supply chain to store merchandising, yet optimizing every aspect of managing the workforce is often overlooked.
