Why Hire a Dedicated Recruiter in the Food and Hospitality Industry?
“Line cooking done well is a beautiful thing to watch. It's a high-speed collaboration resembling, at its best, ballet or modern dance.” - Anthony Bourdain ,
For the restaurant business, or any business really, hiring the right staff is essential for a successful, long-lasting establishment. As the only Dedicated Recruiter for the food and hospitality industry, Clock’d uses a customized hands-on approach to staffing your kitchen so you can focus on putting out a great product. Consider these values in hiring a dedicated recruiter:
Save Time Money & Effort
A dedicated recruiter can fill positions quickly and efficiently during your busiest seasons, or when staff suddenly departs. Now that the applicant pool has exploded, imagine the relief of us taking that on, especially since hiring managers spend an average of 12 hours a week scheduling, hiring, and interviewing candidates without a recruiter. That’s 2.5 months a year.
Think of us as part of the team, working in-house. We identify, vet, interview, and select the most qualified candidates specific to your business. You can focus on proper training, kitchen flow, inventory, and maintaining your high standards.
Since we’re so plugged into the industry, we personalize advice for positive onboarding and training experiences to keep your business humming with the staff we find. Plus, we can provide insights into the latest local trends and best practices for pay structure, benefits, and so forth.
Trust us, keeping your hands in the kitchen and not recruiting has many benefits. From providing expertise and access to a wealth of vetted applicants, to offering guidance and advice, Clock’d Dedicated Recruiter can be an invaluable member of your team.
May your kitchen resemble modern dance.
