Deer Valley Resort, known for its unparalleled guest experience and consistent ranking among the top ski resorts in North America, has selected the Workforce Ready suite of solutions from Kronos Incorporated to attract and retain talent, engage the workforce, and mitigate compliance risk. With Kronos human capital management applications, Deer Valley Resort will be able to more effectively manage the entire employee lifecycle, from pre-hire to retire.

News Facts

  • Deer Valley’s mission is to offer exceptional service to guests; take care of its employees; and continue to build a reputable and growing brand. Recognizing that the workforce is at the core of any hospitality organization’s success in all these areas, the ski resort decided to automate and streamline important processes with Kronos delivering consistent, real-time employee data. Kronos will be used by all employees – both full- and part-time, as well as seasonal, across all 65 departments.
  • Deer Valley selected Kronos time and attendance, human resources, payroll, Affordable Care Act (ACA) management, and mobile applications to standardize processes for employees across multiple locations. Kronos also offers a common, unified platform for human capital management with recruiting, onboarding, core HR, benefits, performance management, compensation, time and attendance, payroll applications, and more.
  • With Kronos, Deer Valley will simplify its seasonal hiring process significantly. Not only will this significantly reduce the effort needed by HR to ramp up for peak seasons, but it will also drive employee engagement.
  • In addition, the mobile applications from Kronos will further empower Deer Valley’s workforce to complete tasks and processes easily, from anywhere, at any time. Employees at a ski resort will not be as effective if they’re sitting behind their desks for long periods of time and this feature will significantly enhance productivity.
  • The Kronos ACA management solution will also help with proactive management of the ski resort’s compliance strategy across the entire workforce.
