Company to Benefit from PeopleMatter’s Leading Talent Management Solutions for the Service Industry

CHARLESTON, S.C.September 17, 2015 —Today PeopleMatter announced that Earl Enterprises®, a leader in the field of entertainment, leisure, tourism, hotel and restaurant consultant services, has selected PeopleMatter to transform the way it hires new employees and provides the training they need to be successful.

Earl Enterprises operates and manages 116 restaurant locations and is the franchisor of an additional 24 restaurant locations, which span some of the most well-known food service brands, including Planet Hollywood, Buca di Beppo, Earl of Sandwich, Planet Dailies, Mixology, Buca Café Italiano and Tequila Taqueria. The company currently employs more than 9,000 team members and is constantly looking to hire the best talent who can deliver on its brands’ missions and provide a high level of customer service. To meet this goal, the company sought to replace its outdated applicant tracking system with a new solution that could help it find and hire the best people faster. At the same time, Earl Enterprises sought to adopt a new training program that could train and develop its staff more quickly and effectively.

After considering a number of solutions, Earl Enterprises found that PeopleMatter could deliver on its needs through a blend of advanced technology and personal, customized service. As such, the company will now benefit from PeopleMatter HIRE, which enables companies to find, evaluate and hire the best talent more quickly through features like a mobile job application and seamless integration with job boards. Additionally, Earl Enterprises has selected to use PeopleMatter LEARN™ for its corporate training initiatives. With video-based courses, online accessibility and interactive learning tools, this solution enables companies to provide their teams with the necessary training while improving engagement and driving content retention.

 “Earl Enterprises relies on a team of highly qualified individuals to carry out industry-leading guest service across all of our brands and locations; the implementation of PeopleMatter HIRE and LEARN enables us to continue to deliver on this goal,” said Giovanni Yruela, associate general counsel for Earl Enterprises. “Not only does PeopleMatter offer these two solutions natively built – a key differentiator from the other vendors we considered that offered a mix and match approach – but the level of attention the company provides is truly what sets them apart and was key to our decision. We are confident that PeopleMatter will help us not only hire the best candidates, but exceed our customers’ expectations through the service of our highly skilled teams.”

“For organizations in the service industry, the ability to hire qualified candidates and provide the training to ensure their ongoing success is essential to gaining a significant advantage in a competitive hiring landscape,” said Greg Rigot, Vice President of Sales for PeopleMatter. “We are thrilled that Earl Enterprises recognized the value of our solutions and their ability to provide the streamlined approach to talent management necessary to developing an engaged, high performing workforce.”
