STERLING, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On the heels of completing its 500th recruiting campaign, Hispanic media provider YaSabe, Inc. announced the launch of JobBot, a stand-alone recruitment platform that streamlines and automates many of the most time-consuming and difficult aspects of recruiting hourly workers. JobBot responds to incoming calls and texts from job seekers and can process online applications from Indeed, Craigslist and YaSabe.com. Wherever and however people apply, bilingual chatbots immediately reach out by text to engage with and screen applicants, automatically scheduling interviews with qualified candidates.
JobBot uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to optimize sourcing of applicants and to educate and improve chatbots that qualify, set interviews and follow up with hourly job applicants. Employers can manage applicants from multiple job boards as well as monitor chatbot activity from a centralized dashboard. JobBot engages with and screens applicants immediately, 24x7, scheduling interviews with qualified candidates on the spot.
“Effective hourly recruitment is becoming increasingly difficult to achieve because of time and cost constraints,” said Zubair Talib, CEO of YaSabe. “This challenge is a perfect fit for the use of AI technology where routine tasks are automated to ensure better and faster results.”
Hourly workers are notoriously difficult to recruit and retain. High turnover and tight labor markets are straining the marketplace and advancements in technology have caused further disruption. Studies find that 82 percent of the applications processed came from people searching and applying for jobs from their mobile phones. As a result, job seekers are applying to more jobs more often and employers must race to get in front of the applicants to have a chance to hire the best candidates.
"Recruiting good employees is an incredible challenge for the restaurant business," said Humera Kassem, Chief People Officer at Good Smoke Restaurant Group. "JobBot automates the most difficult elements of recruiting hourly workers like contacting applicants in a timely manner and dealing with no-shows."
YaSabe is the #1 provider of digital media and technology to help employers, marketers and agencies reach U.S. Hispanics. Through YaSabe.com and a proprietary network, YaSabe reaches nearly 30M U.S. Hispanics each month. JobBot.ai is a stand-alone AI-based recruitment platform that offers a smarter, faster and better approach to recruit and hire hourly workers. For more information visit www.yasabe.com.
