Harri, the leading workplace management solution for the hospitality industry, has announced a partnership with Hosco, the hospitality network operating across the UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa. The two businesses have joined forces to launch an integration for hospitality operators which will provide them with access to Hosco’s innovative and interactive job platform of over 500,000 qualified hospitality professionals.
The integration comes at a time when according to The Society for Human Resource Management, 60% of job seekers abandon an online job application in the middle of completing, due to the length or complexity of the application process. The integration between Hosco and Harri will solve this issue as it uses ‘one-click apply’ to ensure the process is quick, easy and seamless for candidates, resulting in limited applicant drop-off.
With the implementation of a one-click apply integration, candidates will now be able to apply for a job via laptop, tablet or the Harri app, in a matter of clicks. Harri’s intelligent software also gives operators access to valuable tracking and reporting data on jobs posted to the Hosco platform, indexing each job posted against the all-important application, hire, and time to hire metrics, as well as the ability to benchmark Hosco against their own cost per applicant and cost per hire KPIs.
Peter Willis, UK Director at Harri, commented: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be partnering with such a global giant in the jobs platform space to bring operators an abundance of much-needed, unique and qualified talent to our industry. Hosco is so much more than a jobs board – it’s engaging and interactive, whilst also allowing candidates to create social profiles. We’re absolutely committed to reaching the new tech-dependent generation of candidates and we believe Hosco, with their new, social approach to online recruitment, will help us do this.”
Derek Pilcher, Commercial Director at Hosco, mentioned: “Hospitality is one of the fastest growing industries on earth, representing 10 percent of global employment. However, it’s also suffering from a significant talent shortage and high attrition rates. Our innovative technology, in conjunction with Harri’s application tracking system (ATS), will deliver a significant impact to hiring within the hospitality industry as a whole, reducing even more, the time spent by HR teams on sourcing and recruiting talent. On one side, it will reduce the application time for candidates with the goal of optimising the numbers of CVs sent into employer ATSs, and, on the other, employers will receive greater candidate volumes with the matching experience and skills they require to meet the ever growing talent demand.”
