Streamlining Complex Hiring Processes
Rumble Boxing is a boutique fitness franchise that combines the “sweet science” of boxing with the transformative power of strength training. The company’s business model relies on having dependable staff within each franchised studio to execute this distinctive fitness program successfully. Consequently, efficient recruitment and onboarding of trainers are critical to the success of each studio.
As the franchisor, Rumble Boxing provides recruiting and hiring support to more than 24 active franchisees, each of whom may interview upwards of 30 applicants during their hectic startup phase. To help franchisees find the best candidates in their markets, Rumble Boxing initially used an applicant tracking system (ATS) approved by its parent company, Xponential Fitness (NYSE: XPOF).
However, it soon became apparent that the franchisor’s vendor could not meet its specific needs in two significant ways: technology and flexibility.
“Our franchisees have a very complex recruitment and hiring process, and as our brand started to take on franchise partners across the country, we realized that the existing ATS vendor we were working with couldn’t support our franchisees in the way we needed,” said Vince Pacleb, Rumble Boxing’s Vice President of Sales and Operations. “Specifically, the vendor’s technology was incompatible with the workflow our franchisees needed to manage their pipeline of thousands of trainer candidates.”
This situation caused Vince to seek an alternative solution within Xponential Fitness’s network of approved vendors. He hoped to find an ATS that would be easily customizable and capable of scaling to accommodate the increasing number of franchisees. Additionally, because Rumble Boxing required candidates to submit an audition video, Vince wanted the ability to add automated emails that included a sample video with instructions explaining the interview process.
That search led him to JazzHR.
