Caterer.com published a survey showing than half of hospitality recruiters judged the Internet to be the best means of finding workers.

Fifty-three percent of those consulted cited the ‘Net as the most effective recruitment channel, with specialist job sites (unsurprisingly including Caterer.com) selected as the single-most effective means. Print and generalist job sites ranked lowest.

“We are increasingly seeing companies in the hospitality industry adopt the internet as their key source of recruitment. Our research tells us that recruiters not only value the quality of candidates they can access on the internet, but they are able to realise substantial cost-savings when compared to traditional recruitment means such as print advertising,” added Jonathan Hedger.
