Harri Announces Integration with Facebook Job Posting API
Harri, an end-to-end workforce operating system designed for the unique needs of the hospitality industry, announced the launch of its integration with Facebook’s job posting tool.
As one of the launch partners leveraging Facebook’s API, Harri is giving clients yet another way to attract talent with automatic job posting to the Facebook network of two billion monthly active users. This integration streamlines the hiring workflow and provides a seamless experience for Harri clients and Facebook users alike.
Using the Harri x Facebook connection, employers’ open positions will be posted on Facebook via Harri’s Job Distributor tool, which gets jobs in front of millions with just one click.
A majority of new restaurant jobs have gone to Millennials in recent years. The share of restaurant jobs held by 20-to-24-year-olds rose from 21.4 percent in 2007 to 24.2 percent in 2014, while 25-to-34-year-olds also took on a larger role in the restaurant workforce. This demographic of 18-to-34-year-olds is set to make up 75% of the total U.S. workforce by 2025, and are also the largest demographic on Facebook.(1)
Furthermore, Generation Z, which is comprised of roughly 82 million Americans born in 1996 or later, is preparing to enter the workforce. These true digital natives require a unique approach in both hiring and retention.(2)
Facebook’s Product Manager for Jobs, Gaurav Dosi, announced the new integration on Thursday, Sept. 28th at the TAtech conference in Denver, which focuses on the talent acquisition and recruitment solutions.
“40% of US small businesses report that filling jobs was more difficult than they expected, which is challenging when you consider that these small businesses also employ nearly half of the country’s workforce,” Dosi said in a statement. “Facebook’s goal is to take the work out of finding a local job and hiring the right people. This partnership with Harri is another way we’re making the process even easier for people and businesses alike.”
The integration of the Harri platform with the Facebook network has already been completed, allowing Harri clients in the U.S. to leverage this powerful partnership effective immediately. (U.K. clients will be able to leverage this partnership in Q4 2017.)
