Real Mex Restaurants chooses PeopleAnswers for employee screening

Dallas -- PeopleAnswers and Real Mex Restaurants said Thursday the pair has executed a software licensing agreement that will bring the PeopleAnswers HR solution to Real Mex for pre-screening, selecting and hiring managers.

“PeopleAnswers is a proven technology in our industry that will automate a paper-based process while helping us find and select management candidates who will be energized leaders for each of our core brands and help us strengthen our position as the industry leader in Mexican casual dining,”

said Steven Wallace, executive VP and chief people officer for Real Mex Restaurants.

The web-based PeopleAnswers assessment test will evaluate candidates as needed, 24/7, and identify the Behavioral DNA of existing staff to allow Real Mex to focus on management candidates with traits similar to its most successful management team members. After candidates complete the PeopleAnswers assessment test, customized, behaviorally based Performance Profiles will identify the candidates with existing qualities and tendencies that best match with Real Mex management positions.

Real Mex will also use PeopleAnswers as a guide for interview content and to assist in succession planning, as well as employee development. PeopleAnswers will integrate with the applicant tracking system Real Mex currently uses to create a seamless and automated recruitment process.
