5 Ways hap’s Flexible Staffing Solution Can Revolutionise Your Hospitality Operation
There’s no denying that the way we work has changed since the COVID-19 pandemic. All of a sudden, businesses and individuals alike were thrown on to a crash course in adapting under pressure and learning new skills. And adapt we did – the cancellation of festival season inspired us here at hap to rethink our approach to staffing. Not ones to sit around and wait for something to happen, we made things happen – putting the hours in to introduce our hospitality offering.
We’re not the only business to have made significant changes to the way we work, either. Gone are the days of the morning commute and office 9 to 5 – they’ve been swapped out for remote and hybrid working from the comfort of your own home. But while the nature of the hospitality experience means delivering an in-person service, it doesn’t mean you can’t do it on your own terms. Here are all the ways that flexible working can revolutionise your operation…
hap’s flexible approach to staffing gives your team members greater autonomy over their working hours, offering them a greater work-life balance and improving their happiness overall as a result. It’s no secret that a happier team makes for a more productive team, so you can always trust in our staff to provide service with a smile.
2. Greater equality and diversity
Since people have the opportunity to work as and when they choose to, hap has greater access to candidates that wouldn’t necessarily apply for permanent hospitality or events roles. Flexible hours are a great option for working parents, for example, and you also get staff from all walks of life – such as students looking for a bit of extra cash, or even retirees who’d like to continue working without the constraints of a part-time role. 3. Ability to react in real time
Opting for a flexible staffing solution eliminates the issue of being caught out with too little – or even too much – staff. If an unexpectedly busy surge hits, you’ll have the ability to quickly call upon some extra heads. At the same time, if you don’t have as much work available as you were anticipating, you’re not bound by a contract to fulfil a certain number of hours. 4. Multiple cost savings As our flexible staffing solution reduces the problem of overstaffing, you’ll only ever pay for the staff you need. What’s more, you won’t need to spend money on recruitment – we do all the screening and training on your behalf, giving you the opportunity to invest these funds elsewhere.
5. Maximum retention rates
When a talented, skilful member of your team makes the decision to leave your business, it leaves a gaping hole. And in an industry as fast-paced as hospitality and events, it probably happens more often than you’d like. An end-to-end staffing solution such as hap helps you avoid this altogether – making sure you always have highly trained, enthusiastic individuals ready to hit the ground running.
There you have it! When you consider all the benefits that come with flexible workers, it’s easy to see why this model of working is becoming increasingly popular for both businesses and staff. Our question is – are you ready to reap the rewards?
