Recruiting in 2017: Challenges and Opportunities

For Employers

Here at CoolWorks we do our best to actively keep ourselves informed of current economic trends so that we can advise and inform our customers about issues we believe may affect them, steps we believe may help in your recruiting strategies, and what we’re doing at CoolWorks to optimize the traffic to our site to help keep the applications coming in. What follows are some insights we’ve gathered for 2017.

Seasonal Human Resources Association

For Employers

THE conference for seasonal HR and Recruiting Managers to gather, learn, share and invent the strategies and tactics that make their property’s HR efforts successful. Everything from recruiting, retention, and recreation to employment law updates, creative solutions to the growing housing crunch, and invaluable networking.

Mobile Apps = More Applicants

For Employers

If you have an application that’s not mobile friendly, you stand to lose nearly HALF of potential CoolWorks applicants who are engaged and shopping your recruiting materials to employers who are providing them with a way to conveniently apply online.

Retention Starts With Motivation

For Employers

A recruiting strategy is necessary, a retention strategy is crucial. You’ve worked hard to get them there and now you want to keep them there. The employees who are motivated, coached and mentored are the ones that will return as your department head managers and supervisors in future seasons.

All Visas Are Not Created Equal

For Employers

Seasonal Employers have long been involved with the Work and Travel Program – this “Exchange Visitor Program promotes mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries by educational and cultural exchanges.”
