Logan's Roadhouse Selects PeopleMatter to Revolutionize Hiring and Learning Development for All 230 Locations

Leading Casual Dining Steakhouse to Streamline Processes and Increase Employee and Guest Satisfaction With All-in-One Applicant Tracking and Training System

CHARLESTON, SC--(Marketwired - Sep 29, 2015) - Today, PeopleMatter announced that Logan's Roadhouse, a leading casual dining steakhouse headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, selected its all-in-one workforce management system to transform its hiring processes at 230 company-operated stores with more than 16,000 employees. Logan's Roadhouse's partnership with PeopleMatter will not only streamline its recruiting, applicant tracking and onboarding efforts, but also help the organization manage its companywide training program across all locations within one, easy-to-use system.

"Looking for the best-in-breed system meant a lot of things to us -- finding the right tools and feature sets, as well as a common culture of quality and top-notch service," said Michelle Zavolta, Chief People Officer for Logan's Roadhouse. "We were looking for a partner we could trust, one who could scale with us and continuously innovate to fit our growing needs, and we found all of those things in PeopleMatter."

PeopleMatter HIRE™ will revolutionize Logan's Roadhouse's hiring process by offering a mobile-optimized job application to decrease applicant drop-off. In addition, integrated pre-employment assessments give hiring managers greater insight into their top candidates, so they can quickly decide which ones are the best fit, both professionally and culturally.

Furthermore, PeopleMatter's paperless onboarding will allow HR managers to complete, sign and store all of their new employee forms and documents online, so new hires can hit the ground running the first day on the job. Integrations with back-office systems, such as payroll and other financial management programs, will save time, reduce data-entry errors, and allow the company to share data between systems -- critical to improving bottom-line performance.

"Finding the right people for our brand is only half the battle. We also knew we wanted to invest in our employees throughout their time with us," said Zavolta. "PeopleMatter LEARN™ will give Logan's Roadhouse companywide visibility to track employee training and development effectiveness at every location. Giving our team members the resources to grow and 'wow' our customers is incredibly important."

LEARN, PeopleMatter's online learning management system, allows customers to create, assign, and manage unlimited courses on unlimited topics, as well as measure comprehension and track career progression. PeopleMatter's mobile app -- designed with an easy-to-use manager dashboard to track training progress and assignments -- will help Logan's Roadhouse training managers stay up to date, while ensuring compliance. Interactive learning tools increase team member engagement and content retention, while ensuring companywide consistency.

"We felt the passion Logan's Roadhouse has for its team members and customers from the very beginning," said Greg Rigot, PeopleMatter's vice president of Sales. "It's an honor to be partnered with such a leader in the casual dining space. We are thrilled to be such an integral part of helping Logan's Roadhouse drive efficiency, engagement and customer satisfaction in each of its restaurants."
