TROY, Mich. -- TravelCenters of America (TA), implemented JobApp's talent acquisition platform in 2008 with the goal of improving hiring results across its 200 locations, reducing turnover and improving customer service.
Committed to a safe and drug-free workplace, the company also implemented JobApp's one-click integrated background screening solution. To slash administrative costs, JobApp integrated with TA's implementation of PeopleSoft to streamline human resources and payroll processes and eliminate duplicate data entry, the company reported.
"After merely six months of utilizing JobApp across 20 percent of our largest locations nationally, we were able to statistically confirm that the JobApp process reduced 21-day termination ratios by over 40percent," TA's vice president of human resources, Bruce Sebera said in a released statement. "For our leadership team, it was pretty clear that the JobApp process was in fact significantly reducing what I would call hiring issues."
JobApp's solution was built specifically for the radically different needs of decentralized and often predominantly hourly or field-based hiring organizations, the vendor reported.
"JobApp has transformed our hiring culture, we have been able to better control the hiring process across the country and improve new employee performance and retention," said Tom Maren, director of recruiting. "JobApp is unusual among HR technology vendors in that the product performs exactly like they say it will in their sales presentations."
