Hospitality recruitment challenges
Recruiting for the hospitality sector has long been challenging with the perception of low pay and long unsociable hours, and the pandemic has made this even harder. In a recent survey by Joblist, over a third of former hospitality workers said they had no plans to return to their previous jobs or even the sector.
With fewer potential candidates, employers face the challenge of encouraging candidates to apply. With fierce competition from other sectors, employers must keep job seekers engaged throughout the hiring process.
Recently, LinkedIn reported a 20% increase in drop-off from the application and hiring process. Career Builder found that 60% of candidates will quit a hiring process if it takes too long.
