Independent Purchasing Cooperative, Inc. (IPC), the independent SUBWAY® franchisee-owned purchasing cooperative, has partnered with PeopleMatter, provider of workforce talent management specifically for the service industry, to provide “You’re Hired,” an online employee onboarding module to more than 29,000 SUBWAY® locations throughout North America. The partnership will allow these locations to increase profitability and improve efficiencies by leveraging PeopleMatter’s innovative technology.
The platform is accessible through real time integration with My SUBWAY® Career, IPC’s online applicant tracking system. The system allows managers and new hires to complete onboarding tasks electronically – including I-9s, E-Verify, W4s, state and provincial tax documents, franchisee specific documents, and employee handbook review. Configurable to meet the unique needs of each individual franchisee, “You’re Hired” allows managers to easily upload onboarding content and edit workflows.
The new process helps SUBWAY® Franchisees transition their paper-based employee onboarding to the cloud, giving new employees the ability to access and complete tasks at their convenience from any computer or smartphone via the PeopleMatter app. Managers can track activities and manage workflows across all locations ensuring compliance and successful completion of documents, while saving valuable time for both managers and new hires.
The module is designed for optimum adoption within My SUBWAY® Career, giving franchisees the ability to use and receive value from day one. Designated franchisees and managers in an early adopter program are currently using “You’re Hired”, with a national rollout to U.S. franchisees by late summer and Canadian franchisees by 4th quarter 2014.
