Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 04, 2014
Spark Hire (http://www.sparkhire.com), the leading online video interviewing platform, recently launched a whitepaper made for hospitality employers wanting to keep up with the rapidly expanding industry. The free to download whitepaper entitled, “6 Hospitality Hiring Hacks Using Video Interviews”, provides several ways video interviewing technology can refine hospitality recruiting in preparation for the impending flood of candidates and new positions.
“The hospitality industry faces both extremely high turnover rates and thousands of jobs to fill,” says Josh Tolan, CEO of Spark Hire. “Reading this whitepaper is essential for any hospitality employer wanting to best tackle these issues before they become overwhelming for their organization.”
The hospitality industry is on the rise and is the world’s fastest growing industry adding a new job every 2.5 seconds. By 2020, the hospitality industry will grow to encompass 328 million jobs, which means the future of hospitality hiring is going to be far from easy. Video interviews allow hospitality employers to connect faster with candidates so that these jobs are not sitting empty for weeks and months. However, hospitality employers must not hire just to fill positions. They must keep in mind the importance of taking steps to ensure employee retention. A study by the American Hotel and Motel Association found that the average turnover rate for hotel employees in the U.S. ranges from 60 percent to a stunning 300 percent. Video interviewing can be a powerful tool to combat turnover because the technology enables hospitality employers to connect personally with candidates so they are not wasting time talking to people who are all wrong for the job. Hospitality employers can use video interviews to ask important cultural fit questions to better gauge a candidate’s personality, drive, ability to work with others, and ambitions.
Other ways video interviews can be utilized for hospitality hiring that are discussed:
- Improving employer brand
- Attracting talented Millennials to replace retiring Baby Boomers
- Hiring customer service superstars
- Going green and branding your organization as eco-friendly
