November 10, 2009 – Kronos Incorporated has announced the availability of Kronos Essentials — Hiring, a new selection and hiring solution designed specifically for the needs of small- and mid-sized businesses (SMBs). The solution helps organizations to continuously improve the quality of their workforce, reduce compliance risk, and improve productivity. Recognizing that SMBs often have limited IT budgets and resources, this new offering requires minimal IT support, providing organizations with employer-branded career sites in both English and Spanish, and a standardized job application template out of the box. Organizations using the new solution are able to electronically on-board new hires, reducing paperwork and improving productivity of both the new hire and his or her manager. “Kronos Essentials – Hiring is a right-sized software-as-a-service offering at an affordable cost. It gives SMBs access to the same high-caliber selection and hiring solution that many of the world's largest and most successful businesses have been using for years,” said Steve Earl, director of product marketing at Kronos.
