CHELMSFORD, Mass., March 14, 2012 — Kronos Incorporated today announced that Maryland Live! Casino, a new $500 million gaming and entertainment destination currently under construction at Arundel Mills in Maryland, has purchased a suite of workforce management solutions from Kronos including time and attendance, scheduling, HR and payroll, and selection and hiring to help effectively manage its workforce. These solutions will enable Maryland Live! Casino to control labor costs, minimize compliance risk, and improve workforce productivity.
- Maryland Live! Casino selected Kronos for a number of reasons including its deep expertise in the gaming industry, and the appeal of using one solution for all of its workforce management needs.
- Once the facility is complete, Maryland Live! Casino will be one of the largest casino and entertainment venues in the U.S.
- Scheduling and paying staff can be an incredibly complex task for casinos. Their large numbers of employees work varying shifts at different positions and require unique skill-sets. Kronos timekeeping and scheduling solutions simplify this process by making it fair and accurate for employees, and easy for managers.
- Maryland Live! Casino has been inundated with resumes since announcing its hiring plans and is on track to receive more than 50,000 applications for its 1,500 open positions. The selection and hiring solution from Kronos will enable Maryland Live! Casino to manage the influx of applications and hire best-fit candidates. This quick and efficient process will ensure that Maryland Live! Casino is fully staffed for its opening in June 2012.
- With Kronos, data from the hiring solution is integrated into the HR and payroll solution. This eliminates the need for dual entry of data or excessive paperwork, and significantly streamlines the on-boarding process.
- Maryland Live! Casino will take advantage of Kronos' cloud services offering. Kronos will manage and host the solutions enabling Maryland Live! Casino to focus on growing its business while still maintaining complete control of its workforce management solution.
