After a long-awaited return hospitality is back and now indoor drinking and dining is allowed excitement is mounting until the next milestone on 21 June. As lockdown restrictions ease and customers flock back to their favourite foodie destinations, businesses in the hospitality industry continue to manage the fluctuations in daily operations, adjusting to the new normal.
Alongside a dramatic shift to adopt the guidelines whilst delivering the very best service for new and old custom, organisations in the sector are handling an unprecedented volume of recruitment to respond to new demand. Although such great positive news, organisations embarking on this journey need to rely on the software, processes and support systems surrounding them to propel forward their recovery.
At networx, we are proud to be supporting a number of leading hospitality brands, including Stonegate Group, who are home to over 4,500 sites with brands such as Be at One, Slug and Lettuce and Craft Union. With a strong belief that the pub is the heart of the British culture, since reopening they have been exceptionally busy, ensuring they deliver the first class service they are known for across all of their hospitality venues.
Stonegate Group have been working with networx for over four years, utilising our recruitment software to centralise their recruitment management throughout their exponential growth. As the organisation continues to grow, maximising the use of automated workflows and controlled user access has enabled them to scale at pace, providing the independence, autonomy and flexibility hiring managers need, whilst adhering to central Pub Support Team processes.
Kate Mansell, Senior Recruitment Manager at Stonegate Group, comments, “We are really pleased to be open for business, to welcome customers new and old back into our venues across the UK. Our team are the ones that bring our service to life and it has been crucial that we have been able to scale since reopening, to cater for the return to ‘normal’.
Speed and efficiency are key for us with such a large volume of roles for a wide number of brands that we manage nationwide, whilst also maintaining a great candidate experience that is reflective of our employer brand and company values. Partnering with networx has enabled us to manage recruitment centrally and seamlessly integrate with our newly branded website so the end-to-end process both internally and externally is clean and simple. The ongoing, in-house support and guidance has been incredibly valuable at this time, to ensure we can keep pace and recruit the very best talent with ease.”
