Restaurants Cut Hiring Costs by 60 Percent
Roger Brown’s Restaurant and Sports Bar and The Cove Tavern have implemented HotSchedules to deliver greater efficiencies in both their labor management and hiring processes. HotSchedules provides intuitive mobile and web-based employee scheduling, communications and paperless hiring solutions.
Already customers of the HotSchedules integrated Workforce and Digital Logbook solutions, Roger Brown’s, a 16,000 square foot restaurant and sports bar and The Cove Tavern, a Caribbean-themed, cozy neighborhood get away, recently adopted HotSchedules’ newest product offering, GoHire, to streamline their hiring processes.
Right away, they noticed a substantial, beneficial financial impact for both establishments. The restaurants’ owner confirms that GoHire has brought costs per hire down from $750 to $300. What’s more, Roger Brown’s has definitely benefitted thousands of dollars as a result of using GoHire to find tax credit opportunities, $500-$1,000 per qualifying employee.
Prior to implementing GoHire, both restaurants were utilizing traditional paper-based application and onboarding processes, which created a number of issues for the team. Now, using GoHire, the establishments are able to advertise jobs on multiple job boards, rank applicants based on set parameters, and determine tax credit opportunities, all from one portal. Further, they can onboard new employees online, collecting signatures on employee manuals, I-9s, W-4s and any other necessary forms and materials.
