Unlocking the Potential of Young Talent in Tourism: 3 Key Areas for Improvement

The tourism and hospitality industry is growing rapidly with the increasing number of guests and travel revenues. As the competition for talent becomes fierce, companies need to focus on improving their recruitment strategies to attract young talent. Here are three things hospitality recruiter needs to improve based on the upcoming trends.

icon-long-form Flexibility in work schedules:

According to a report from employee experience platform Harri and data and insight consultancy CGA, up to 49% of a 5000-individual sample group said they first look for flexibility and work-life balance before accepting a hospitality job. Even through the interview process, recruiters can promote their company’s flexibility. With interview scheduling tools like Rakuna, you can hand your candidates the freedom of scheduling and rescheduling to engage with candidates or allocate resources to other critical tasks.

icon-long-form Improve candidate experience:

While it should go without saying, companies that successfully attract talent sell the company and candidate experience first, then the job and pay second. A positive candidate experience can begin with how you communicate with your lead. Need a communication strategy that is pertinent, timely, and attentive? Schedule post-event interactions using email or text automation features in software such as Rakuna’s Campus & Event Recruiting Solution. Don’t leave your prospects hanging.

icon-long-form Highlight technical efficiency:

With all of the technology being and will be implemented to improve the job efficiency of the hospitality industry, the prospect of doing tasks the “pen-and-paper way” can be terrifying, especially for young candidates in your college recruiting programs. Recruiters should highlight various technological aspects of a position if they are available. For example, voice-activated technologies like online reservation systems are all areas that hotel staff may manage and program.

icon-long-form Diversity and Inclusion:

Hospitality recruiters also need to address the issue of diversity and inclusivity in their recruitment strategies. Historically, the tourism industry has been criticized for its lack of diversity, particularly at the leadership level. To attract a diverse range of young talent, recruiters must be intentional in their efforts to create inclusive hiring practices and foster a culture of belonging within their organizations.
