MANILA, Philippines, April 30, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Talkpush, the Conversational Recruitment Platform, announced today an agreement with McDonald's Philippines. McDonald's has more than 635 stores in the Philippines and counting. In line with its continuous expansion, it now looks to further accelerate its recruitment by delivering a fun and interactive experience to its candidates via AI-assisted conversational agents (aka chatbots).
McDonald's recruitment team will leverage Talkpush's dynamic sourcing and screening capabilities to hire and recruit for restaurant management roles and restaurant crew. This, in turn, will improve candidate management while streamlining and automating recruiting workflows. The main objective: getting back to candidates faster, fast-tracking their application and thus further strengthening McDonald's reputation as a leading employer in the industry.
Commenting on selecting Talkpush as its recruitment innovation partner, Chona Torre, Senior Vice President for Human Capital Group at McDonald's Philippines, says, "We were looking for a technology partner that would help us automate the more administrative and repetitive parts of the recruitment process. This way, we're able to enhance the candidate experience thanks to a much better quality of human to human interaction. Our candidates are also our customers and ensuring a seamless experience while exploring a possible career at McDonald's is something we want to provide. We are happy to partner with Talkpush to make applying for a job at McDonald's more candidate-friendly and enjoyable. We look forward to fostering more recruitment innovations moving forward, setting the bar higher for the quick service restaurant industry."
In 2019 alone, McDonald's is looking to hire tens of thousands of employees nationwide. Getting back to potential candidates faster, being more attentive to their needs, while being able to respond to their very own hiring needs can now happen more efficiently with the help of Talkpush.
Max Armbruster, CEO of Talkpush, aligns with McDonald's commitment to delighting candidates, and says, 'With the use of conversational agents on Messenger, Talkpush will enable McDonald's recruitment teams to meet the candidate where they are: on their mobile phones and on the go. We are honored to work with them to support their employer brand with candidate-centric experiences.
Talkpush is the new way employers and candidates connect all over the world. We believe hiring is about starting conversations; and are on a mission to level up the recruitment experience.
