BLOOMFIELD HILLS — JobApp Network says its talent acquisition software has cut employee turnover 41 percent for Tampa, Fla.-based Checkers Drive-In Restaurants after nine months.
The company said that means its investment in JobApp will be repaid in less than three months.
Turnover results from the Team Members at JobApp restaurants were significantly better compared to Checkers’ control group restaurants.
Eliminating paper through JobApp allowed Checkers to process 14,000 applications across its 298 corporate locations in November alone and entirely eliminate paper from the hiring and onboarding processes.
“Over the past four years, Checkers and Rally’s has been investing heavily in systems, including guest satisfaction, speed of service and other operational tools along with Back Office solutions that are delivering record-level results in Guest Satisfaction and other operating metrics,” said Adam Noyes, chief restaurant operations and supply chain officer. “With operational technologies well in hand, our JobApp partnership has helped us to focus on hiring right, which is the first step of the new people strategy at Checkers. The JobApp tool has helped drive awareness to an available employment pool, and has systematized the manual system, providing our managers with tools to select the very best. We also partnered with JobApp on full integration with our other operating systems, so it is a win-win for our team and for our guests.”
Restaurant manager surveys conducted by Checkers across more than 50 restaurants indicated that restaurant managers also clearly perceived that JobApp brought a better quality of applicant and reduced time-to-hire. In fact, the vast majority of their restaurant managers indicated an average time savings of approximately two hours per week, and 92 percent of restaurant managers strongly recommended rolling JobApp out across the entire system.
Compliance was also a major driver in Checkers’ decision to implement JobApp. JobApp’s electronic I-9/E-Verify compliance solution and electronic forms management technology helps greatly to simplify compliance – something that has become especially important in light of the federal government’s increased scrutiny of employers (employer I-9 audits have quadrupled over the last three years).
JobApp gives any company with a decentralized workforce what it needs to hire the best person for the right job, right now. The system helps employers identify the top 20 percent of applicants at a glance, engage the best candidates quickly and, just as efficiently, draw a bead on a new employee’s best next move within a company. Behind the scenes, paperwork is eliminated from the entire process, from application (whether by phone or online) right through onboarding and early performance management. Hiring compliance? Done. Tax credit eligibility? Handled.
