CHICAGO, Nov. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Hcareers, the leading career resource serving the hospitality industry, announced the relaunch of its platform, now utilizing AI-powered technology that will match individuals with roles that fit them best and encourage longevity, retention, and growth. Studies show that salary, benefits, and employee reviews are among the top qualities looked for in a job, while benefits and perks convince job seekers to apply for a role. The new Hcareers will modernize recruitment practices with its composite Fit Score to process data related to company culture, skill set, salary and benefit needs, values, and company attributes. The combination of those factors will attract the top candidate to a posting and move those candidates to the top of a recruiter's pool of candidates. Employers can now also create comprehensive profiles showcasing their top attributes to attract candidates.
Hcareers better aligns today's job seeker-to-recruiter relationship by using an intelligent job posting network designed specifically for hospitality employers. Now, it will also provide tools and insights for employers to attract top talent and influence potential employees' decision-making. To further career education and advancement, employers and employees will be able to receive personalized skill development road maps to increase upskilling within the industry.
"Hcareers now offers job seekers in the hospitality industry possibilities they've never had before and the most robust platform for employers to attract candidates," said Ron Mitchell, founder and CEO of Virgil Holdings. "Using our AI-enabled job matching, career path identification, and professional education, Hcareers will help identify and launch sustainable, long-term careers in an industry with an infamously high turnover rate."
Employers will now be able to attract more candidates who fit their culture and share their company values through branded pages and video to share what it is like to work at the company, highlight employee stories, and more. By matching candidates with a company based on data and intangibles that extend beyond roles and responsibilities, Hcareers creates job satisfaction, longer stays with a company, and increases the rate of career growth.
To help further increase a focus on long-term career development in the hospitality industry, Hcareers has partnered with leading hospitality organizations to deliver the new resources to millions of hospitality workers, students, job seekers, and employers. Partners include the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), National Restaurant Association (NRA), and the International Council on Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Education (ICHRIE).
