Use Christmas to boost long-term recruitment, urges The Change Group

Hospitality recruiter The Change Group looked at data over the past three years and found that recruitment rises by up to 47 percent during November and December, ahead of the busy festive period. This recruitment appears to be mostly short-termist, with figures showing a 10 per cent drop in recruitment for permanent positions. The Change Group suggested that instead of taking a short-term approach, employers could use the seasonal boost in recruitment to bolster their staff for the future, investing in the major talent and demonstrating hospitality as a long-term career choice.

Key Takeaways:

  • The recruitment of temporary staff at Christmas could be used as a way for hospitality businesses to find and invest in future talent, new research has suggested.
  • However, this recruitment appears to be largely short-termist, with figures showing a 10 per cent drop in recruitment for permanent positions, compared to a 77 per cent increase for temporary back-of-house roles.
  • Training, development and team-building, as well as adapting shifts and work patterns for new staff could help encourage workers who previously saw their roles as a temporary option, to consider a career for the long-term.
