Prioritizing the quality of new hires can improve employee retention and morale, decreasing turnover costs. Restaurant owners should analyze their recruitment and onboarding practices and consider the following strategies for improving hiring outcomes:
Assess recruitment methods. Many candidates won’t complete outdated applications. Simplifying the process with mobile-friendly applications and applicant tracking systems can help organizations increase their candidate pool and the likelihood of finding the right hire.
Prioritize fit. The right employee is more than an impressive resume. Rely on reference checks, skills assessments, and behavioral-based interviewing methods to find well-rounded candidates.
Communicate openly. Listing pay ranges and honestly describing job expectations and organizational goals can establish trust among job candidates, increase the odds of finding a successful hire, and improve employee satisfaction in the long run.
Focus on diversity. Most employees consider diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) essential. Organizations that commit to DEI have a better chance of attracting and retaining employees and may see improvements to their bottom line.
Consider artificial intelligence (AI). AI can increase efficiency and fairness in the hiring process. However, employers should be aware of potential accessibility and unintentional discrimination issues associated with this new technology.
Try temporary-to-permanent (temp-to-perm) hiring. Hiring workers temporarily allows employers to fill positions without committing to permanent employment, reducing the risk of poor hiring outcomes.
Finding the right hire the first time can improve company culture and employee productivity and ultimately increase revenue.
