better for the retail workforce

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ceridian, a global human capital management (HCM) technology company, is
excited to offer today’s modern retailer new innovations that cater to
the unique needs of their industry. Through the planned release of
Dayforce On-Demand Pay and a virtual assistant for Dayforce, retailers
will be able to harness Dayforce’s cloud-based platform to further
improve employee recruitment, management, development, and retention.

“The future of work for retail and hospitality companies has never been
more reliant on tech innovation. Business leaders must embrace new
technologies to not only elevate their HR function, but to increase
employee retention and meet the demands of their retail workforces,”
said John Orr, Senior Vice President of Retail, Ceridian. “With
Dayforce, retailers like Sephora, Carter’s, 99 Cents Only Stores, and

Each day more than a million employees use the Dayforce mobile app to
see schedules, manage their timesheets, view their earnings, request
vacation, set their availability, and shift trade.

“We are hearing from our store associates that mobile is expected now.
Through the Dayforce mobile app, associates can check their schedules,
swap shifts and change their availability – from any location, whether
it be at home or on the go,” said Matthew Gist, Senior Store Systems
Specialist, Designer Shoe Warehouse.

Ceridian continues to lead in HCM innovation and recently announced the
forthcoming release of several new features including:

  • Dayforce’s virtual assistant is an intelligent bot that helps
    companies enhance the employee experience by making it easy and
    convenient for them to make schedule changes or request time off
    through voice or chat commands.
  • Dayforce
    On-Demand Pay
    enables employees to take a pay out based on their
    earnings when they need it with just a few taps in the Dayforce mobile

Both innovations seek to improve the employee experience by focusing on
providing convenient and efficient access – so employees can focus on
doing great work.

“Enterprises need to move faster than ever before and HCM innovation is
a way to accelerate their business. To deliver a better employee
experience, seamless integration into the places where work happens is
fundamental and we see voice becoming the new user interface,” said
Holger Mueller, Principal Analyst and Vice President of Constellation
Research Inc. “And at the same time, ‘always on’ payroll is shaping a
new standard for how employees want to be paid.”

99 Cents Only Stores, David’s Tea, and DSW, rely on Dayforce’s
