Hireology hospitality representatives at HITEC

The Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC) 2024 in Charlotte, NC, was groundbreaking for the hospitality sector, bringing together industry leaders, technology innovators, and hospitality professionals from around the globe. This year, Hireology had the privilege of attending this prestigious event, showcasing our cutting-edge recruitment automation solutions and engaging with experts on the front lines of the hospitality industry.

The HITEC Experience

HITEC is not just any conference; it is the largest exhibition of global hospitality technology, featuring over 325 companies that display today’s most innovative solutions. From AI advancements to automation tools, HITEC is where the future of hospitality technology takes center stage. For Hireology, it was an invaluable opportunity to understand the pressing challenges in hospitality hiring and how to demonstrate how our solutions can address these issues effectively.

The Challenges of Hospitality Hiring

Revolving Door of Hospitality Positions

The hospitality industry is no stranger to high employee turnover rates. Positions such as housekeepers and food and beverage workers often see rapid turnover, making it challenging for hotels to maintain a full staff. This revolving door of employees impacts the bottom line, as unfilled positions delay room turnovers and guest service, ultimately affecting customer satisfaction and revenue.

Competition for Top Talent

Competition for top talent is fierce among hotels. The struggle to attract and retain quality candidates is a common concern voiced by many attendees at HITEC. As 60% of hospitality applicants expect to be interviewed within 3 days, the importance of speed in hiring is more important now than ever. Without an effective hiring strategy, hotels find themselves at a disadvantage, unable to compete with other establishments that may offer better incentives or a faster, streamlined hiring process.

Lack of Customer Support and Reporting Insights

Many hospitality professionals at HITEC expressed dissatisfaction with their current applicant tracking systems (ATS) due to the lack of customer support and insufficient reporting capabilities. Recruiters need detailed insights into their hiring processes to make data-driven decisions and present comprehensive reports to owners and stakeholders.

The Role of AI and Automation in Hiring

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation were also hot topics at HITEC. Attendees were curious about how these technologies could streamline their hiring processes, and expressed a desire to understand how AI could be integrated into hiring solutions to make the process more efficient and user-friendly.
