PeopleMatter Reinvents Hiring for Service Industry With Latest Product Innovations

Company Introduces New, Market-Leading Products and Enhancements to Improve Applicant Pipelines and Management Bench Strength

CHARLESTON, SC--(Marketwired - Aug 10, 2015) - Today PeopleMatter announced the availability of its 2015 August product release, delivering numerous features designed to further enhance how service industry companies hire, manage and develop high-performing talent.

With its latest release, PeopleMatter introduces several cutting-edge features developed to transform how employers manage their talent. One of the key features of the release is PeopleMatter PERFORM™, which enables employers to evaluate and drive performance of their teams by providing continuous and meaningful feedback. More millennials and Gen Z employees enter the workforce each day, and they bring with them new attitudes about work -- particularly the desire to own their career paths and development and get the feedback that enables them to continually improve their performance. PERFORM allows managers to meet this need, offering customized evaluations, development plans, frequent informal feedback, and succession dashboards to align company needs with employee goals and to ensure team members understand what they can do to advance to the next step in their careers.

In addition, PeopleMatter's new, extensive Talent Acquisition Analytics allow hiring managers to understand the candidate sources that deliver the highest quality applicants, which is crucial to the success of any hiring program. With the introduction of Talent Acquisition Analytics, PeopleMatter provides employers with insight into the reach of their job postings and the best way to target the active and passive job seekers who can make a positive impact on their organizations.

PeopleMatter continually introduces new solutions to improve the way its service industry clients manage their workforces, whether hourly or salaried employees and regardless of geographical distribution. As a result, organizations benefit from greater operational efficiency, enhanced productivity, improved visibility and higher employee and customer satisfaction. Other key features of PeopleMatter's latest release include:

  • Salaried Recruiting: As hiring corporate and salaried employees is much different from hiring hourly workers, PeopleMatter reveals new functionality to enhance talent acquisition for corporate and management hiring. These include quick apply functionality, customizable message templates and interview management tools designed to get qualified candidates in the door faster.
  • Mobile Enhancements: As more employers use mobile strategies to communicate with candidates and current employees alike, PeopleMatter's latest release improves the experience. Features include SMS text alerts and the ability to send status changes to applicants through SMS, as well as greater visibility from any device into the PeopleMatter LEARN courses that current employees have completed.
  • Greater Compliance: PeopleMatter introduces several new features to ensure compliance and help companies protect their brand, data and bottom line. These include location-specific application questions, e-Signature improvements and updates to comply with the latest E-Verify regulations.
  • Advanced Configurability: Drawing directly from client feedback, PeopleMatter delivers enhanced customization, including no-email apply, enabling applicants to apply without a PeopleMatter account; a new message center to improve applicant and employee communication; employee ID lock to ensure certain data won't be changed once it's in the system; and enhanced workflow configurability so relevant employee data is filled out accurately.

"PeopleMatter understands that today's job seekers and employees alike demand constant communications -- from wanting to know where they stand in the hiring process to learning how they can elevate their performance and grow professionally," said Kay Lucas, vice president of Product Management at PeopleMatter. "The many features in our latest release were designed to meet these needs, offering new channels and tools for strengthening those interactions and creating greater visibility. We are proud to deliver such innovative solutions that help more employers gain a competitive advantage by building more engaged, satisfied and productive workforces."
