The secret to success is to help franchisees build rock-star teams. This was the sentiment when U.S. Lawns deployed JobBot.Ai to help its franchisees recruit and hire hourly employees. Amid the most challenging labor markets in decades, U.S. Lawns has turned to artificial intelligence (Ai) to help all its franchise owners tackle some of the most difficult challenges with recruiting hourly workers.
Founded in 1986, U.S. Lawns services commercial customers through a nationwide franchise network in over 260 locations, providing customized grounds care and snow & ice management services to corporate campuses, retail centers, industrial parks, multi-family residential communities and other commercial customers.
The company has installed JobBot.Ai, which provides intelligent chatbots that contact and screen job applicants on behalf of franchisees. The Ai automates critical tasks involved with hourly recruitment, contacting applicants immediately whenever they apply and responding to calls and text messages. Jobbot works continuously 24/7 to screen candidates and schedule interviews, liberating franchisees and their staff from such tedious and time-consuming work, allowing them to focus instead on growing the business.
“Hiring the best people is the key to our continued growth,” said Ken Hutcheson, President of U.S. Lawns. “Besides bringing efficiencies throughout the organization, we want to enable our franchisees to take advantage of new technologies like JobBot.Ai that can help them achieve better outcomes.”
