Decathlon UK partner with Selima

Decathlon are one of the world’s premier sports retailers with 65,000 employees worldwide and over 1,500 of those employed in 30 Decathlon UK stores. Decathlon UK has an exciting 12 months ahead with 10 new store openings. To support this growth, Decathlon UK partnered with Selima to replace their legacy HR and scheduling systems.

Rainier Deysel, Decathlon’s Payroll Manager, stated:

“The decision to replace our old legacy technology entailed extensive research. Our main objective was to find a reliable solution with future proof technology to support our current situation and particularly our future growth.

We found that Selima were unique in providing a proven and retail focused SaaS, HR, Workforce Management and Staff Scheduling system within a single platform.

Since roll-out we have been able to automate many time-consuming processes and devolve HR tasks to store and departmental managers. We are extremely impressed by Selima’s software capabilities. The intelligence, forecasting and cost savings we have gained is astonishing.”

Decathlon were able to fully implement Selima across the business in just eight weeks. This was due to the enthusiastic adoption by employees as a result of the intuitive and familiar user experience provided by Selima’s ultra-modern software.

Staff at Decathlon UK have welcomed the software, with many citing the adoption of Selima as “incredibly swift and seamless.”

For Decathlon, it was important that they found a system to fully support their ambitious growth plans whilst enabling them to manage the software themselves, without constantly incurring expensive fees from a provider as their needs change.

Decathlon’s system owner can make changes such as adding new locations and changing configurations themselves with the Selima help desk always just a phone call away.

Since partnering with Selima, Decathlon UK employees and managers now spend less time on HR and scheduling tasks and more time doing what they do best: running great stores and delivering an unrivalled customer experience.
