If You Think Working for Them Couldn’t Get Any Better…You Don’t Know Del

One of the nation’s most popular Mexican QSR restaurant chains – Del Taco – just announced a partnership with PeopleMatter to provide the company with a fully automated, cloud-based Applicant Tracking and Onboarding (HIRE™) system as well as a Learning Management System (LEARN™). The new HIRE system will be available soon for its more than 300 company restaurants nationwide while the LEARN component will be made available to company stores and franchise partners. PeopleMatter is the largest provider of workforce management technology specifically designed for service-industry leaders like Del Taco.

With the PeopleMatter Platform™, Del Taco will provide an engaging, easy-to-use hiring and training program that instills in all team members Del Taco’s culture of delivering a great guest experience every time. From the online application through the continuous training in their careers with Del Taco, every employee will benefit from clear and consistent communications, and the system interaction will build upon the fun culture that is inherent in the brand.

“We consistently ask ourselves how we can best support our restaurants, our employees and our franchisees,” said David Snyder, Vice President of Information Technology for Del Taco. “The answer is simple, invest in our people. With this new technology, our managers can quickly hire the best people and train them to be successful. PeopleMatter is helping turn the Del Taco of today into the Del Taco of the future.”

The PeopleMatter Platform provides managers and job seekers with a user-friendly hiring platform that is accessible not only online, but also via mobile technology applications. With a large millennial workforce, the platform’s mobile capabilities allow Del Taco to engage with potential new hires in ways that are already familiar to applicants. People interested in becoming part of the Del Taco team can search for available positions, apply directly from their mobile app and complete their onboarding tasks electronically once hired – all through the easy-to-use PeopleMatter Platform.

Automated applicant sourcing and tracking tools give hiring managers visibility into their applicant pipeline and help find the best fit candidates. I-9 verification built into the hiring workflows and electronic interfaces with Del Taco’s internal systems for new hires provides cost-saving efficiencies and ensures companywide compliance.

Del Taco is committed to providing ongoing training to all team members in order to ensure that every guest leaves happy – new products, new offers, system updates are all immediately accessible to build stronger and more productive teams. The PeopleMatter Platform will allow restaurant managers to connect and communicate easily with their on-the-go employees. Training videos, interactive learning tools and customizable content will help create a unified, engaging learning environment. Employees can learn and complete training tests on a variety of topics from building the best taco to providing excellent guest service.

“We are honored to have been selected by, and to be partnering with Del Taco,” said Nate DaPore, PeopleMatter President and CEO. “It is an amazing company that prides itself on having a great culture, fresh and delicious food, and exceptional guest service. Helping brands like Del Taco invest in their people is our passion, and we’re excited to help them continue their longstanding tradition of success.”
