Minneapolis, MN and London (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Dayforce, Inc. (NYSE: DAY; TSX: DAY), a global human capital management (HCM) leader that makes work life better, today announced that New Look, a leading affordable fashion omnichannel retailer in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland, has chosen Dayforce to help provide a modern employee experience, optimise its workforce, and unify its HR and payroll processes in a single cloud HCM platform.

With more than 8,500 employees, plus additional seasonal workers during busy holiday periods, New Look was searching for a comprehensive solution to unify the employee experience across brick-and-mortar stores, ecommerce, and fulfilment.

With Dayforce we will provide a modern, seamless, flexible HR and pay system that not only meets our needs today, but also in the years ahead.”
