Cathy Pryor Of Hibbett Sports Wins Retail Innovator Award For Automating Store Operations

Time-Saving Automation with Dayforce HCM Enables Rapid Expansion

Ceridian News FlashMinneapolis, MN, June 2, 2016 - Ceridian, a global human capital management technology company, announces Cathy Pryor, Senior Vice President of Store Operations at Hibbett Sports, one of the fastest growing retailers in the country, has won the Retail Innovator Award from Retail TouchPoints for automating labor budgeting and scheduling with the Dayforce HCM solution.

Coordinating retail operations across 1,000 stores in 33 states without a single application for labor budgeting and scheduling meant managers spent too much time managing manual processes and navigating separate tools. Also, staff could not quickly review or adjust plans and store schedules when needed.

These inefficient processes limited operational staff from driving the company’s expansion plans of 60 to 80 new stores per year. However, by rolling out Dayforce HCM to automate labor budgeting and scheduling, store and retail operations have been revolutionized.

“With labor budgeting and scheduling in one application, adjustments to the labor plan are instantly available to scheduling managers,” says Cathy Pryor of Hibbett’s. “We’ve eliminated costly manual processes that took operational staff away from more strategic efforts including our expansion plans.”

The Retail Innovator Award honors executives in the retail industry focused on driving change through innovation. “Congratulations to Cathy Pryor and Hibbett Sports for pushing innovation through technology,” says Debbie Hauss, Editor-In-Chief, Retail TouchPoints.

“Hibbett Sports continues to provide excellent products and services to the communities it serves – which is a testament to Cathy Pryor’s leadership and the extended Hibbett Sports organization,” says John Orr, Senior Vice President of Retail, Ceridian. “This recognition reinforces their continued commitment to digitizing the stores and core retail operations.”
