Shakey’s Pizza Asia Ventures, Inc. (PSE: PIZZA), one of the leading full-service restaurant chains in the Philippines, partners with Darwinbox to empower its team of 1000+ employees with HR tech to bring in operational efficiency and improve business productivity.
Darwinbox, an end-to-end HRMS platform that recently became the only Asian player to feature on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for HCM suites for 1000+ Employee Enterprises, is set to help Shakey’s thrive in a post-covid world by managing its Human Resources effectively from hire to retire.
As organizations recalibrate work, workforce, and workplace, leveraging digital tools and systems that not only help them stay ahead of the curve in the post-covid economy but also future proof for the new world of work becomes imperative. For a forward-thinking company like Shakey’s, investing in its most valuable resource, its people, has always been a priority.
Vicente Gregorio, the President and Chief Executive Officer of PIZZA, said, “PIZZA is ultimately a guest-centric business where people are front and center. When our people are well-cared for, it flows through to our guests. Guest-centricity begins at home, thus, investing in our people is a key pillar in delivering sustainable growth. Our partnership with Darwinbox is a validation to this commitment.”
Shakey’s employee-centric work culture is demonstrated in its multiple initiatives. Last year, the company rolled out a program to bring store employees closer to their place of work and reduce their travel time. To date, more than 90% of PIZZA’s workforce is within 30 minutes away from their place of work.
With Darwinbox by its side now, Shakey’s Pizza now has the power to complement its safe and healthy work environment with a tech infrastructure that manages the entire employee lifecycle. With its 1000+ employees under one virtual roof, it is possible for PIZZA to keep a record of its employees, provide quick and actionable feedback, and ensure an impeccable employee experience for everyone. Further, Performance Management, Leave & Attendance Management, Recruitment, Analytics, and Reporting are some of the key areas in the HCM suite that the food chain plans to adopt over the coming months.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be partnering with one of the leading restaurant brands in the Philippines. By providing PIZZA with a digital platform for all their HR needs, we are enabling an uninterrupted and frictionless experiences for employees across its multiple stores, and for the company, it means improved efficiency and productivity,” said Jayant Paleti, Co-founder of Darwinbox. He further added, “We have a lot to look forward to in the first phase of this partnership. With a one-stop-shop for feedback, advanced analytics, company-wide engagement surveys, amongst other things, Shakey’s will find it easier to run smoother HR operations to yield momentous outcomes.”
At Shakey’s, the HRMS implementation continues in full swing with go-live scheduled in early Q1 aligned with PIZZA’s reopening moves for 2022. The company is already gearing up for a strong recovery, investing in-store network expansion and more than 30 new stores already built-in 2021.
