1:50 PM Reducing Vacancy by Re-imagining the Candidate and Employee Experience

Low unemployment rates have created a fierce competition to fill entry-level QSR, retail and warehouse positions. To counter that, Checkers and Rally's Restaurants began overhauling their recruitment program, focusing on establishing their brand in online job portals, creating a text recruit program, and offering a flexible pay program. The end result was fewer vacancies and a 30% reduction in absenteeism. In this session we will discuss:


  • Best practices for managing your online employer reputation
  • Streamlining the application process for mobile platforms
  • Effective candidate marketing, including point-of-sale and job fair events 
  • Creating effective referral programs utilizing employee networks
