HotSchedules and PeopleMatter Partner to Create Workforce Management Platform

HotSchedules and PeopleMatter have announced a multiphase partnership to create the restaurant industry’s top workforce management platform. The first phase, a referral partnership, will bring HotSchedules’ all-in-one scheduling application and the PeopleMatter HIRE™ solution to customers. To provide one seamless solution, the companies will integrate their complementary applications via the HotSchedules IoT Platform.
PeopleMatter was founded in 2009 to address the service industry’s notoriously high turnover rate. Today, the company’s workforce management solutions are used in more than 47,000 individual store locations across 7,000+ businesses to build employee engagement, increase worker retention and lower operational costs.
Moving forward, HotSchedules will refer customers to PeopleMatter HIRE™ for its mobile job application and applicant tracking to increase applicant volume and improve candidate quality. Paperless onboarding helps restaurants decrease time-to-hire and meet legal standards at both the federal and state level. Automated I-9 verification and e-Signatures help ensure companywide compliance, while optional background and tax credit screening allow hiring managers to quickly and easily identify the best candidates.
HotSchedules, founded in the late 1990s by two restaurant guys who were fed up with old-school scheduling practices, aims to make managing and working for a restaurant easier. In 2013, HotSchedules joined forces with three other hospitality technology companies to offer a more comprehensive workforce and operations management solution built for the mobile era. Today, HotSchedules serves more than 2 million users in over 150,000 locations across 26 countries.
PeopleMatter will refer customers to HotSchedules’ all-in-one scheduling app, which allows managers to forecast and create schedules within minutes. With HotSchedules’ mobile app, employees can request to swap, release and pick-up shifts, and managers can approve changes with a tap. The scheduling app reduces labor costs by as much as 2 percent and can integrate with popular POS solutions for clock enforcement and enhanced forecasting.
PeopleMatter will also refer customers to HotSchedules Recruit, a referral-based social recruiting app that targets restaurant industry workers. Restaurants can post jobs for free and job seekers can quickly and easily identify jobs in their area or refer friends to open positions.
