UKG, a leading provider of HR, payroll, and workforce management solutions for all people, announced that Portillo’s, a fast-causal restaurant chain famous for its unrivaled Chicago street food, is using UKG Pro to address industry challenges.

Founded in 1963, Portillo’s has grown to include restaurants in more than 70 locations across nine U.S. states. A UKG customer since 2007, Portillo’s has relied on Pro recently to adapt to changing conditions in the industry, especially related to attracting and retaining talent.

“The current business environment in the hospitality space means that culture is more important than ever. Portillo’s is a values-based organization, so in addition to paying competitive wages, we must maximize the engagement of our team members, and embrace team members as part of the Portillo’s family,” said Jeanene Isaac, vice president of total rewards and HR operations at Portillo’s. “UKG Pro People Analytics makes it easy for me to quickly pull reports related to pay, demographics, turnover, and current headcount, so the company can make informed business decisions that help to staff our restaurants and retain our team members.” Inc., the fast-growing player in next-generation job search platforms, which recently raised a $120 million US Series B investment, announced today two senior appointments to its board of directors: serial tech entrepreneur Chris Arsenault, and experienced Silicon Valley executive Lindsey Argalas.

With more than 25 years of operating and investing experience, Chris Arsenault has become a key pillar of Canada’s tech ecosystem. He co-founded venture capital firm Inovia Capital in 2007, leveraging his entrepreneurial instincts to shape its culture, vision, and path forward. He played an important role in helping build many of the firm’s most valuable companies, including Lightspeed, Luxury Retreats, Sonder, and AppDirect, serving as a board member and coach to the founders.

VirgilHR announced the launch of its new platform to transform employment and labor law compliance for HR teams globally. VirgilHR hosts a proprietary database of employment and labor law requirements that integrates directly with HR technology to manage the compliance of employment decisions in a whole new way.

The chatbot guides HR teams while they work, providing prescriptive legal guidance, developed by experienced attorneys, in areas such as leave and wage and labor. VirgilHR streamlines compliant employment decisions in minutes by analyzing thousands of employment and labor laws and simplifying the decision-making process for HR team members.
