HotSchedules' GoHire Cuts Cost Per Hire by 60% at Roger Brown's and The Cove Tavern

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- HotSchedules, which provides intuitive mobile and web-based employee scheduling, communications and paperless hiring solutions for the restaurant industry, has partnered with Roger Brown’s and The Cove Tavern to deliver greater efficiencies in both their labor management and hiring processes.

Already customers of the HotSchedules integrated Workforce and Digital Logbook solutions, Roger Brown’s, a 16,000 square foot restaurant and sports bar and The Cove Tavern, a Caribbean-themed, cozy neighborhood get away, recently adopted HotSchedules’ newest product offering, GoHire, to streamline their hiring processes. Right away, they noticed a substantial, beneficial financial impact for both establishments. Owner, Curtis Lyons, confirmed, “There is a significant savings to us by putting all of these processes online. GoHire has brought our costs per hire down from $750.00 to $300.00. What’s more, Roger Brown’s has definitely benefitted thousands of dollars as a result of using GoHire to find tax credit opportunities. We’re looking at $500-$1,000 per qualifying employee – that’s a huge savings.”

Prior to implementing GoHire, both restaurants were utilizing traditional paper-based application and onboarding processes, which created a number of issues for the team. Now, using GoHire, the establishments are able to advertise jobs on multiple job boards, rank applicants based on set parameters, and determine tax credit opportunities, all from one portal. Further, they can onboard new employees online, collecting signatures on employee manuals, I-9s, W-4s and any other necessary forms and materials.

Lyons continued, “GoHire makes it incredibly easy to post to any job board you want, so we can publicize our open positions in a much more professional manner. And we absolutely get better qualified applicants since we began using GoHire. We’re also able to do a much better job of prescreening candidates before spending time interviewing them, which means we don’t waste time on applicants who aren’t well-suited or don’t have the right experience we need. Spend less time, hire the right people.”

Roger Brown’s Restaurant and Sports Bar: Named for the NFL defensive lineman who played with the Detroit Lions and the LA Rams, Roger Brown’s offers chef-inspired dishes in 16,000 square feet of sports bar awesomeness. From the ninety-foot bar, order anything from classic cocktails to beer or wine from a distinctive list of top picks. The menu is broad and deep and offers a number of freshly prepared dishes.

Roger Brown’s is located in Portsmouth, VA and opened its doors in November 2000.

The Cove Tavern: Dubbed “A little place to get away,” this Caribbean-themed hideout in Williamsburg, VA focuses on fresh seafood dishes that inspire visions of the tropics.
