**Charleston, S.C. - Dec. 6, 2010 **- Boloco, an innovative restaurant company offering "inspired burritos" to the New England area, announced that it will implement PeopleMatter Hire™ to help find, hire and manage its workforce. Boloco will deploy the PeopleMatter talent management system to automate and streamline its hiring and onboarding tasks, such as applicant tracking, background checks, hiring assessments and electronic I-9 verification, to its 16 locations.

Personal interaction and employee value have been integral principles to the Boloco brand since it was founded in 1997. Boloco chose PeopleMatter as its HR technology provider because of their shared vision for growth, innovative technology in the workplace, a strong company culture, and a passion for people. PeopleMatter Hire combines these values in a talent management solution that also consolidates and automates all hiring tools into one, easy-to-use system. Hire's simple, clean user interface and ability to translate multiple languages ensures high internal adoption and greater return on investment.

Boloco also embraces the tech-savvy, well-connected, up-and-coming Generation Y workforce. Boloco appreciated the PeopleMatter product ecosystem's seamless integration with social media tools and applications that will keep its workforce motivated and engaged as the company expands.
