Dallas, TX, May 2, 2007 -- While summer marks a slowdown for many companies, it is high season for the restaurant, travel and tourism industries. Many hospitality companies increase hiring during the summer months and at the same time increase their risk of selection mistakes. Batrus Hollweg International, a consulting firm specializing in Talent Gauging, provides five tips for "Hiring Right When It Counts Most: High Season."
Last year in the restaurant industry alone, almost half a million jobs were added according to the National Restaurant Association. The impact of seasonal hiring is significant.
"Escalating summer employment brings additional challenges because companies still need to recruit and select individuals who are the right fit for the job and the culture even if employment is only for the season," said Linda Pharr, President and Chief Operating Officer of Batrus Hollweg International (BHI). "These seasonal employees will either be the face of the brand or will be in key operating positions responsible for food or services of the brand."
The cost of making a wrong hire can result in lower customer satisfaction, employee satisfaction, teamwork, and revenues. A comprehensive, systematic approach to seasonal hiring can make a difference.
