Improving our operations with their technology leads to happier employees, better customer service and increased growth.
CHARLESTON, SC (PRWEB) December 02, 2014
Tavistock Restaurant Collection (TRC), a group of 27 award-winning fine dining restaurants, has selected the PeopleMatter Platform™ to unify and streamline employee hiring, training and scheduling. Tavistock’s numerous concepts include Abe & Louie's, AquaKnox, Napa Valley Grille, California Cafe, Atlantic Fish, Coach Grill, ZED451, Joe's American Bar & Grill, Blackhawk Grille, Timpano Italian Chophouse, Cafe del Rey, Taqueria Canonita and Sapporo. PeopleMatter’s cloud-based technology, built on one code base, will replace TRC’s current, disparate HR systems, saving managers time, improving efficiencies and increasing productivity. Tavistock Group, the parent company of Tavistock Restaurants Upscale Collection, is an international investment group with investments in more than 200 companies in 15 countries.
PeopleMatter, the leading provider of workforce management technology built specifically for the service industry, will provide TRC with a comprehensive, easy-to-use platform that gives visibility into employee hire-to-retire data within a single platform. An integration with TRC’s payroll provider will create a robust system of use that ensures companywide consistency, saves managers significant time and removes the need for manual data entry into multiple systems.
“At Tavistock Restaurant Collection, we continuously strive for the best – to make our restaurants the most sought after place to work for restaurant professionals and create an unparalleled dining experience for our patrons nationwide,” said John Bettin, CEO for Tavistock Restaurant Collection. “The decision to partner with PeopleMatter supports this mission. We further our ability to find the best-fit employees, provide continuous training and manage schedules, all in one ease-to-use system. Improving our operations with their technology leads to happier employees, better customer service and increased growth. It’s a perfect partnership.”
User-friendly job applications and seamless job board integrations allow TRC to increase the number of job applicants. Pre-employment assessments built into the application process help hiring managers quickly identify best-fit candidates based on job roles, and background checks round out comprehensive screening options. Mobile-optimized job applications and assessments, now available in a shorter, scientifically developed 6-minute mobile version, help TRC find and recruit employees on the devices they prefer most – smartphones or tablets.
Onboarding workflows within the platform ensure compliance and provide new employees with a smooth, easy-to-understand onboarding experience. Video-based training courses and interactive learning tools standardize TRC’s training programs across all locations and increase employee engagement. Employee scheduling capabilities allow managers to quickly create optimized schedules, monitor labor costs and communicate with employees. Employees can view schedules, request time off or swap shifts anytime, using their mobile devices.
“We are thrilled that Tavistock Restaurant Collection selected our platform to streamline its HR processes,” said Nate DaPore, PeopleMatter President and CEO. “They have a first-class reputation for providing exceptional service, both to their patrons and employees. Working with TRC to support their success and passion for greatness through our technology is an incredible honor.”
