With strained supply chains, increasing demand for in-app ordering, and contactless transactions, the food and beverage industry is feeling the pressure to meet demands and keep up with consumers while still running profitable operations.
Restaurant leaders need to evolve with industry demands and continue to fight for the attention of an hourly workforce with increasing opportunities for movement. Lowering barriers to entry on applications, improving time-to-hire, and streamlining the applicant experience are essential. Fulfilling both in-house and delivery staffing needs requires a robust and streamlined applicant tracking system that can keep up with a mobile-savvy clientele.
