DALLAS November 13, 2013PeopleAnswers today announced that it has executed a software licensing agreement with Santander Consumer USA (Santander), a unit of Banco Santander, for Santander’s use of the PeopleAnswers HR-focused business solution. Santander will use PeopleAnswers to staff its U.S. operations with employees possessing the right skills as well as cultural and behavioral characteristics to fight the high cost of hiring the wrong employees.

“In our fast-paced business, using science to help bring qualified employees on board who also fit into our culture and will stay with the company is a competitive differentiator,” said Michelle Whatley, chief human resources officer, Santander Consumer USA. “PeopleAnswers’ unique science will help us build successful teams then let us use insight from the hiring process to help team members develop their careers while preserving our culture and achieving company goals.”

Santander will first use the intuitive, cloud-based PeopleAnswers software on its desktop and mobile platforms to evaluate, select and hire software engineers who develop the company’s back office and client facing applications before expanding to all hourly and management employees.

PeopleAnswers will use its unique Predictive Talent Analytics™ to compare each candidate against custom behaviorally based Performance Profiles. Santander recruiters and managers will also use PeopleAnswers as a guide for candidate interview questions.

The result will be a consistent and faster employee recruiting process, higher quality hiring decisions and lower turnover. Managers will also use the data gathered from candidates and employees during selection to create a successful onboarding process as well as succession planning and employee development.
