Hospitality HR Platforms We Love
There are 14.4 million employees in the restaurant industry, which is 10% of approximately 150 million working Americans. With such a massive market, there is no doubt a high demand for innovative and effective platforms that allow job seekers to be connected with employers and vice versa.

This company is looking to be the LinkedIn of the industry. According to their website, “Harri maximizes human potential with a breakthrough hospitality talent management solution for employers and job seekers.” With approximately 2 million job applications submitted and almost 300,000 members, Harri is a comprehensive platform for hiring within the hospitality industry. It allows users to set up personalized profiles to create differentiation and attract employers. It also enables them to filter their job search to find exactly what they are looking for.
While this is not necessarily a hospitality only platform, it is still a relatively effective way of posting jobs and receiving responses. Approximately 60 million people use Craigslist every month in the US alone. With this much traffic, it is undoubtedly still a great way to reach out to potential employees.
