Hiring a hospitality manager can be a long, distracting process. Many business owners and operators simply don’t have the time to conduct a proper search. According to NACE, the average time from interview to offer is 22.5 days. Screening resumes, checking references and qualifications, running background checks and other hiring steps take up a lot of valuable work time. Having a recruiter on your team will save you countless hours in the long run.
The Bottom LineOne bad managerial hire can cost a company upwards of $50,000 or more. Hiring, training, employee productivity and guest service are all affected when the wrong person is in a position. Finding a qualified, top-tier candidate to begin with is key to saving money.
NetworksHospitality Recruiters use a wide array of tactics when it comes to sourcing great talent. Networking is one of the most important. Recruiters have a deep network of contacts and candidates. This allows us to find people who would otherwise be “off the radar” to some companies. Working with a hospitality recruiter gives companies inside access to top talent in the industry.
CandidatesFinding great candidates is what hospitality recruiting is all about. And believe it or not, top hospitality managers like working with recruiters. We keep them up to date with openings, cater to their needs as an employee, and negotiate with companies on their behalf. These types of managers are vital to a successful hospitality organization. Studies have shown that top-producing employees can add 3 to 5Xs their annual salary in company value.
A GuaranteeAny reputable hospitality recruiting firm should have a placement guarantee as well as a replacement policy. If they don’t deliver a great placement you shouldn’t owe them anything. If their placement leaves within a certain amount of time they can replace them at no cost, one of the many benefits of using a recruiter to find managers.
