SEATTLE, Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ABM (NYSE: ABM), a leading provider of integrated facility solutions, signed a multi-year national agreement with Jobaline Inc., a mobile and bilingual hourly jobs matching marketplace and training network. Jobaline will assist ABM's rapid growth by facilitating faster access to skilled workers and reducing pre-screening and recruitment costs. ABM employs more than 100,000 skilled, hardworking people in more than 300 offices throughout the U.S.
"ABM deeply cares about the experience of their workers and we are very proud of our partnership," said Jobaline CEO, Luis Salazar. "The workforce today accesses the internet from mobile devices first and foremost, and we want to ensure people can apply to any job, regardless of their level of access to technology, and get matched to the best opportunity. Since starting to work together with Jobaline in 2014, ABM has seen great results in our field operations, helping to put people back to work faster while their field operations save substantial time."
During the ABM-Jobaline program's pilot phase, more than 45,000 job applications were processed and ABM saved more than 7,500 hours in pre-screening, and reduced recruitment advertising and labor costs by more than 60 percent if compared with traditional methods.
ABM first started to use Jobaline's technology in Seattle, recruiting for security and janitorial services positions. They later expanded to the whole West Coast region, where ABM won several marquee customers, such as the new NFL stadium in Santa Clara. Using a mobile, bilingual and compliant application process, they filled over 500 janitorial positions in record time, delivering on the client's needs while saving thousands of hours reviewing job applications.
"As a result of the success reported by their field operations in the West, East and South regions, we are excited that ABM is expanding nationally with Jobaline," said Salazar. "Jobaline gives recruiters peace of mind that their hiring efforts are being handled in a professional manner, creating the best possible match for the worker and in compliance with EEOC and OFCCP guidelines. Our solution is allowing ABM's recruiters to stay focused on the needs of their employees, their clients and the growth of their business."
In the past 18 months, Jobaline processed close to two million mobile and EEOC compliant job applications, creating a network of close to one million highly qualified local hourly workers that are treated with respect in a mobile experience, free of advertising and marketing solicitations.
"The hourly jobs sector is 76 million workers strong and represents two-thirds of the U.S. labor force, yet inefficiencies in recruiting and training for that workforce costs employers billions," concluded Salazar. "By working closely with the team at ABM, we are enabling them to put people back to work faster and more efficiently."
