So, how do you effectively recruit in the hospitality sector?

1. Reduce Application Time

The application time can be a long process, not only for candidates to go through but also for recruiters to review and evaluate. This means you should look to cut the time down, especially during the application process as it doesn’t need to be extremely long.

Video assessments are six times faster than your average telephone interview and allow hiring managers to set a few questions and see candidate’s answers on screen. This gives recruiters the perfect opportunity to cut down on time and gain a better understanding as to whether the candidate is passionate about their potential role and if they will fit in with your company.

Video assessments allow you to cut down on time and gain a better insight into the candidate, it’s a win, win process.

2. Be Active on Your Social Profiles

Being active on your social profiles is not only good for engaging with customers or suppliers, but it is also good for your brand and making people want to work for you. Therefore, you should use your social profiles to your advantage and advertise your business in an extremely positive way.
Improve your brand recognition and you’ll see the applications flooding it.

3. Video-Led Recruitment

Not only are video assessments a good strategy for improving your hiring outcomes, but so are video CVs and video interviews. Each of which holds many benefits and helps improve your recruitment process.

Video-led recruitment gives jobseekers the opportunity to present their professional strengths and provides recruiters with a chance to gain a first impression and a better understanding of the applicant’s communication skills and cultural fit. As well as this, using video is a great way to save recruitment time and add a more personal touch to your average job application too.
