Attracting Talent in the Catering & Hospitality industry
Attracting talented & experienced candidates can be very difficult for many employers. If you’ve struggled to recruit staff who add value to your organisation & stay over a long period of time – then you’re not alone.
Many employers, hiring managers and restaurant owners face the same issues, time after time and season after season. For some employers it seems that they are consistently recruiting and the staff come in as fast as they go out.
If this sounds familiar – then the chances are you’re not attracting the right people for your vacancies. Now, please understand that the catering & hospitality sector is very demanding – requiring long hours and hard work, so candidates leaving is not uncommon.
However, there are candidates within the catering & hospitality sector who genuinely love what they do. These are the people you need to attract to your business.
You need chefs who are eager to develop your menu’s for the changing season, who are creative in the kitchen creating new and tasty dishes to keep your customers coming back either for their usual favourites or to try a new special.
You need warm and welcoming front of house staff, who make each and every customer feel comfortable, welcomed and properly looked after.
To attract candidates like this can be difficult, time consuming and expensive – but the benefits far outweigh the disadvantages. Because within the catering & hospitality sector word of mouth about a great experience & service or a tasty dish is the best form of advertising for your business.
