Taking the Guesswork out of Hiring!
Troy, MI (PRWEB) September 2, 2009
Belle Tire, the 8th largest tire retailer in America, quietly rolled out JobApp, a talent acquisition and hiring management solution, across 81 of their locations in Michigan and Ohio in 2008. Store managers, warehouse managers and recruiters were initially skeptical about JobApp. What was this new system that corporate was going to make the managers use? How much time was it going to add to managers’ days?
Much to the delight of over 100 managers involved in the roll-out, JobApp completely changed the hiring game for good—enabling hiring managers to select better tire technicians, retail associates and other employees, while spending up to 80% less time on recruiting and hiring. The excitement across the organization was visible. Store managers and warehouse managers were convinced they were hiring better people and felt that their turnover had declined.
Belle Tire felt the need to obtain an independent analysis, though. As a result, Belle Tire commissioned an in-depth analysis of tire technicians and retail associates hired through JobApp versus those that were not hired through JobApp. And the results were astonishing.
Belle Tire discovered, just as hundreds of other retailers, restaurant chains, warehousing, distribution and hospitality companies have discovered, that employees hired through JobApp were simply better employees and they were there to stay. The most critical metric that company executives focused on at Belle Tire related to tire technicians, which was traditionally the company’s highest turnover position. Over the same period of time, tire technicians hired through JobApp exhibited approximately half the turnover level of tire technicians not hired through JobApp.
JobApp continues to penetrate new industries as companies discover how JobApp is changing the hiring game, delivering huge efficiency gains and turning HR into a profit center. During the past month, JobApp added two more tire retail chains to its client list: Jack Williams Tire Company, a Pennsylvania-based tire retail chain and Tire Barn USA, an Indiana-based chain.
