Hospitality Talent Outsourcing

According to a study produced by Robert Half, 41% of surveyed hiring managers and HR professionals who have all made a bad-hire estimate the costs at thousands of dollars. Knowing that there is a monetary risk involved, your strategy for hiring at the executive level (director and up) should include three important considerations: time, talent, and treasure.
It takes the right talent to hit the right buttons when attempting to recruit busy executives. The important questions to ask yourself here are whether or not your internal interviewers know what questions to ask, and how they ask them in order to zone in on, say, the implications of a family move to a new state or country. So next time you’re thinking of how best to find the right talent for one of your most important positions, think twice about your approach and let one of our consultants help you.
