Innovative tech company offers “Recruit” feature to aid businesses in their holiday hiring needs
Newark, NJ (Restaurant News Release) According to a recent survey, 1-in-8 U.S. adults are actively looking for seasonal work, and 14% say they intend to start searching for part-time and seasonal positions soon.
That’s good news for hospitality and retail brands struggling to fill positions ahead of the holidays, but employers aren’t just competing against the clock to onboard and train new workers – they’re competing against each other to recruit the best applicants.
In a tough labor market, many employers are looking to pay and benefits to lure candidates. Strategies range from advertising higher wages, flexible hours and employee discounts. But while some turn to swag and perks, others are turning to 1Huddle.
1Huddle is a game-based coaching and development platform that uses neuroscience and the power of play to get workers ready for day one – whether they’re a maid at Loews Hotels or a pilot in the U.S. Air Force; and now, in the fight to win talent, it’s become top brand’s secret weapon.
The platform is an innovative way for brands to set themselves apart from the competition by attracting applicants, identifying qualified candidates and engaging talent in new and exciting ways.
“Brands using 1Huddle are supercharging their recruiting efforts just by utilizing quick-burst games to review an applicant’s performance,” said 1Huddle CEO Sam Caucci. “With this process, employers can cut their hiring efforts in half while also ensuring the candidate learns a company’s culture and showcases their skills to the employer.”
With one brand seeing a 66% increase in applicants in half the time, not only has the platform been effective in getting more people to apply – it’s also been a critical tool to ensure that the right people get hired.
1Huddle games provide valuable insights into applicants before they’re invited to interview. How an applicant responds under pressure or how many times they’re willing to replay a game are all potential indicators of how well they adjust to hectic situations – whether that means interfacing with holiday diners or Black Friday shoppers.
According to industry experts, the biggest way to incentivize restaurant staffing during the hectic holidays is to make use of mobile platforms. As the workforce grows increasingly tech-savvy, the use of mobile apps and mobile-optimized sites directly connects employers with candidates while engaging and educating them.
“1Huddle is the key to innovating the hiring process,” Caucci said. “Without having to spend time scheduling dozens of interviews that eventually fall through, Recruit gives hiring teams the peace of mind they’re hiring the right person the first time.”
With training that’s 45% faster and 1,000% less boring, 1Huddle makes upskilling fun and combats many of the flawed methods of coaching using science-backed, quick-burst mobile games. 1Huddle is a long-term solution that companies can implement to offer accessibility supported by 12 languages and free upskilling to employees at all levels. 1Huddle truly believes that learning is as much a perk as a 401k or insurance and employers should treat it as such.
