Troy, Mich. – November 20, 2009 – JobApp Network (“JobApp”), the fastest growing hiring management solution for retailers, has announced extremely robust client results with DTLR, the leading urban fashion retailer in America. DTLR is the flagship retail concept of Levtran Enterprises, a high-growth, private equity-owned retailer based in Baltimore, Maryland.
DTLR implemented JobApp in all of its stores nationally over a 4-week period in October 2008. DTLR had hard and measurable business objectives in mind: reducing sales associate turnover and reducing turnover-related costs, especially new employee recruiting and training costs. In the first eight months of utilizing JobApp, DTLR’s HR, operations and finance teams were able to confirm hard dollar savings representing an annualized ROI of over 400%. Over the same time period, sales associate turnover was reduced by 41%. By utilizing a control group of new hires to factor out general labor market developments over the same period, DTLR determined that approximately half of the 41% reduction in employee turnover was directly attributable to JobApp.
“We are extremely excited about the results with JobApp after less than one year and we are looking forward to a strong partnership to ensure that we are always able to staff our stores efficiently with high quality individuals who can better represent our products, our brand and our service standard,” stated Michelle Holmes, Director of Human Resources at DTLR.
“DTLR’s strong, measurable, and financially relevant results again demonstrate how JobApp is changing the game for retailers by enabling them to hire better people, faster and more efficiently,” stated Blake Helppie, Chief Executive Officer of JobApp Network, Inc. “JobApp has again proven to be effective not only with hiring sites that engage in high-volume hiring, but also small box retailers that hire as few as 5-10 employees per year,” added Helppie.
