In the UK alone, the CIPD reported that in 2018 almost half of employers experienced greater difficulty in recruitment, while a third found it harder to retain staff. When we look at the hospitality space, if you talk to any HR manager, Food & Beverage Manager, Head Chef and the like, one of the biggest burdens to their daily working life is in hiring.

Recently, artificial intelligence created by an Oxford University spin-out could soon be used by UK firms to predict if employees are about to resign. This is because figures suggest it costs companies more than £105,000 when they lose an employee, based on factors such as hiring costs and productivity losses. It’s no wonder many are questioning their hiring strategy and looking for new ways to break through these barriers to keep business thriving.

What’s trending?

It used to be the norm to stay in the one workplace for 30 plus years before retiring, but we’re now seeing a fluid movement of workers emerge, where people chop and change jobs between not only roles but entirely different sectors. The Deloitte Global Millennial Survey 2019 reported that ‘49% would, if they had a choice, quit their current jobs within the next two years.’ Rapid social and technological advancements are harnessing more modern attitudes towards work life balance, and this is shaping how we work, and how we hire. That makes it very difficult to retain talent, and if you’re spending so much money on hiring you would want to. So, what’s the way around it?
