3 Benefits of Outsourcing Your Casual Staff

Employment in the Australian hospitality and tourism sector is growing by over 15% each year. With the current climate of the hospitality industry including the skills shortage, now more than ever it’s vital that operators focus on revenue building and customer service to remain viable and relevant.

With our eleven years of successful operation, we strongly believe that placing value in your team and investing in your employees first should be the biggest priority to run a successful hospitality business. This means engaging and aligning all of your workforce. As our CEO notes,

"In order for people to go above and beyond, to be connected and engaged with your brand, they must feel their work has meaning. That they can effectively make a difference to someone’s day or impact the overall success of the business."


More than having a strong workplace culture, you should be prioritising your staff before all else, from your managers and supervisors to your casual staff. Here are our top three benefits of outsourcing your hospitality staff.


1. It saves you time

How much time are you spending finding and managing new staff for your venue? We can bet it’s a lot. Recruitment and onboarding could be costing you more than you realise since you could be spending your valuable time investing in your current staff, growing your business, and focusing on profit. Outsourcing your staff could maximise your time management and internal resources.


2. It saves you money


Let’s face it: employees are expensive. Regardless of the size of your business, outsourcing can save you significant costs. In fact, reducing costs is the number one reason why companies outsource their staff. Outsourcing tasks to trained professionals allow you to stick to smaller budgets and only pay for what you need. Meaning, investing in staffing outsourcing will result in lower turnover rates in the long run, along with assuring consistently skilled and passionate staff that are the right fit for your venue. This way, you need not to stress about your employees misrepresenting your operation or lacking the qualifications or skills to perform.


3. It helps cultivate growth


Rather than trying to keep up with the high turnover of hospitality employees, outsourcing your staff gives you the freedom to focus on your venue’s growth and profitability. Rather than trying to search for skilled staff, you should be spending your valuable time concentrating on the functions that make your business flourish. You already have enough challenges on your plate; when you’re able to stop stressing about complex tasks, you will be able to grow your business an ultimately boost your productivity.
