By using assessments to identify applicants that perform better and stay longer, and then measuring the effectiveness and impact of those hires, OutMatch helped to generate a collective return on investment of more than $40 million for a pair of leading restaurant chains: Chili’s Grill & Bar, which operates 1,600 locations worldwide, and American Blue Ribbon Holdings, which has over 640 locations nationwide.
