Boloco Knows Its People Matter, Chooses Hiring Tool

Boloco, a restaurant company offering “inspired burritos” to the New England area, announced that it will implement PeopleMatter Hire to help find, hire, and manage its workforce. Boloco will deploy the PeopleMatter talent management system to automate and streamline its hiring and onboarding tasks, such as applicant tracking, background checks, hiring assessments, and electronic I-9 verification, to its 16 locations.

Personal interaction and employee value have been integral principles to the Boloco brand since it was founded in 1997.

Boloco chose PeopleMatter as its HR technology provider because of their shared vision for growth, innovative technology in the workplace, a strong company culture, and a passion for people. PeopleMatter Hire combines these values in a talent management solution that also consolidates and automates all hiring tools into one easy‐to‐use system.

Hire’s simple, clean user interface and ability to translate into multiple languages ensures high internal adoption and a greater return on investment.

Boloco also embraces the tech‐savvy, well‐connected, up‐and‐coming Generation Y workforce. Boloco appreciated the PeopleMatter product ecosystem’s seamless integration with social media tools and applications that will keep its workforce motivated and engaged as the company expands.

"We chose PeopleMatter as another important step in our mission to positively impact the lives of our people through bold and inspired food and practices," says John Pepper, cofounder and CEO of Boloco. "PeopleMatter's tools provide a simple, engaging way to connect our teams, culture, and brand while giving our HR team more opportunity to focus on what matters most to our teams. The fact that PeopleMatter includes social media integration is a real plus, too."

“The Boloco brand is a great match for PeopleMatter’s solutions,” says Nate DaPore, PeopleMatter president and CEO. “Our tools put people over paperwork and simplify HR tasks, so managers can focus on engaging their workforce and providing excellent customer service.”

PeopleMatter continues to rapidly develop products to transform talent management in the service industry, with plans to launch scheduling and learning modules next as part of the PeopleMatter product ecosystem.
