The festive season may have been and gone, but HR teams and recruiters, are you still reeling from the stress of seasonal hiring?
It was a chaotic season, to say the least, but you did it! Now we know that it’s the last thing you want to think about right now… but are you prepared for next season?
You think we’re crazy, we get it. But now is the time to start thinking about how you can make next year’s seasonal hiring period your most successful and stress-free yet. Sounds too good to be true, right?
Wrong! With just a few steps, transform your bulk-hiring and onboarding process to ensure you get ahead for next year.
We don’t need to remind you of the exhaustion that bulk hiring causes.
You may think the days of scanning endless applications, burying yourself in paperwork and smiling through hundreds of interviews are over, but it will come back around just as fast.
What if we told you that it doesn’t need to be this way? In fact, seasonal hiring could be pretty smooth, and not something you dread.
Imagine an automated workflow that would do all those repetitive tasks for you. Sounds too good to be true?
What you need is an Applicant Tracking System (ATS).
With Recruit, our ATS, you’ll attract and retain top talent while delivering an excellent candidate experience. Recruit scales with your business, so say goodbye to stressing over seasonal recruitment.
And thanks to talent banking (your very own portal full of candidates who have previously applied for a role in your company), you’ll have instant access to loads of ready-made candidates. Reduce your time and cost to hire!

So, you’ve found your people – what now?
We don’t need to remind you that it doesn’t stop with just hiring the right candidates. It’s now the time for onboarding tonnes of new starters at once – which in itself is an even bigger challenge.
Onboarding isn’t just about setting people up with their work accounts or uniforms, or whatever it is they need for their first day. You want people that are going to stay for the duration of the season, enjoy their experience, and actually consider the possibility of returning next year.
Hiring people that already know the company and job? Yes, please! Seasonal staff may be temporary, but creating a great relationship can develop a long-term commitment over the years.
This is why first impressions mean everything, so you need to provide outstanding onboarding, that begins before the very first day. And before you ask, “Outstanding onboarding surely isn’t that crucial”, great onboarding can improve employee retention by 82%. It even increases productivity by over 70%!
So, how do you give an excellent onboarding experience to hundreds of people?
