While unemployment remains high in many sectors, the Service Industry uniquely has trouble finding qualified workers. Rapid turnover, high employee acquisition costs, and talent mismatches are only a few of the service industry’s hiring challenges.
Apploi’s interactive Point of Apply in-store kiosks and mobile hiring solution makes it a no-brainer for service industry workers, who often have no formal resume, to overcome the barriers of the application process. No resume, no problem. Apploi tests applicant skills using appropriate customer service-related questions, analyzes personality, and matches job seekers more accurately. Recently recognized by the White House for its innovative methods in helping service industry job seekers, Apploi announces the launch of its industry-leader Advisory Board.
Apploi’s new Advisory Board is comprised of top HR, retail, hospitality, and technology experts, many of whom have been early-adopters of Apploi, and in their capacity on the Board, represent themselves and not their organizations. The group includes: Nancy Straface of Century21, Philip Hendrickson of Apple Retail, Julian McClean of Nike, Ken Cooper of Bloomberg, Jaclyn Coughlan of Fast Retailing and UNIQLO, Erinn Tucker of Boston University, Tony Fogel of Ciber, Laurel Touby founder of Mediabistro, and Wendell Blaylock of Georgetown University.
Since its launch a year ago, Apploi has garnered more than 1,700 client companies, including Cinnabon, UNIQLO, Massage Envy, and many Fortune 500 companies have been hiring through Apploi. Tens of thousand of job seeker members join each month.
Apploi CEO, Adam Lewis, stated “We are delighted to bring such a wonderful and varied group of thought-leaders and subject matter experts together. This new Advisory Board will help us build our community quickly and put more people to work.”
Advisory Board member Erinn Tucker of Boston University adds, “Working together with Apploi and fellow advisory board members is an exciting opportunity for workforce development, education and the industry to pool together our passion and resources in an impactful way.”

Apploi transforms the initial point of capture for job seekers, allowing hiring companies to review personality and soft skills upfront (through on-the-spot video and audio questions), hire talent quickly (through filters and screening tools, as well as instant communication). Apploi provides greater access to people who previously couldn’t apply (lack of internet) or who didn’t know about opportunities. Apploi’s public kiosks and points of apply are available at company locations, as well as job centers, community centers, colleges, workforce centers, and libraries.
