Flat fee recruitment is a cost effective strategy for hiring

The coronvirus pandemic is forcing hotels and restaurants to find new ways to cut costs as companies plan their hiring strategy to slowly open back up. While first priority is to bring back previous employees, many employers are finding gaps as some team members have left the industry or do not wish to return. Faced with smaller budgets, now might be a good time to consider flat fee recruitment.

HOSPITALIO Recruitment introduced flat fee recruitment to the hospitality industry a few years ago to help hotels and restaurants with limited budgets.

“We had a few clients that were wasting a lot of money on job boards. Jobs boards require the client to risk spending money upfront and getting nothing. The only other option was contingency recruitment where the agency takes all the risk and the client only pays if someone is hired. Flat fee recruitment is a hybrid. Unlike a job board which takes their money and cannot guarantee candidates, our flat fee recruitment offers the benefit of a professional recruiter sourcing, screening and briefing. Plus they are guaranteed suitable or interested candidates or they are refunded.” said Kyle Ovens, a partner at Hospitalio Recruitment

HOSPITLALIO charges a simple flat rate based on the salary range of the person hired. The fee is due when the person starts and there is no obligation to hire anyone they send. All placements come with a 3-month guarantee that can be upgraded and clients can pay a $1500 retainer before they start the search and save 50% on the fee.
