nowHIRE.com announced it has enabled AutoZone to decreased turnover by 46 percent and save an estimated $5 million annually. nowHIRE completed implementation of the enterprise-wide applicant tracking and talent acquisition system in November 2007.

Since the implementation, AutoZone, the nation’s largest automobile parts retailer, has seen a 50 percent increase in the number of qualified candidates, a 20 percent reduction in time-to-fill for corporate jobs and a 20 percent reduction in terminations for integrity/internal theft.

“AutoZone is the largest multiple-platform, multi-lingual and completely paperless enterprise implementation ever in our vertical,” said Joseph N. Impastato, II, nowHIRE’s president. “This implementation shows our commitment and ability to support recruiting and talent management needs from the corporate office to the store.”

The system is a fully integrated, Web-based, multiple-track application process for corporate, hourly, internal and contingent workers. Candidates for corporate positions pre-screen themselves with weighted question types and also provide a resume. Hourly “store” candidates are put through a more robust yet extremely easy-to-navigate “applicant self-selection” process that extracts pertinent candidate information to facilitate a quicker, more consistent hire.

Additionally, the implementation of the nowHIRE eSignature module has enabled a completely paperless electronic hiring process. The process eliminates paper usage, mailings, postage, imaging, storage, printing and faxing of applications and on-boarding forms.

“Enhancing the applicant experience and improving turnover rates were two of our biggest objectives,” said Ann Morgan, vice president of human resources for AutoZone. “The nowHIRE implementation exceeded our expectations with 46 percent decrease in turnover rate and a significant estimated cost savings of $5 million annually.”
