Employer Branding for Food Organizations & Restaurants

Food businesses are in a war for talent. Engage better talent and ensure they to want to join your organization with an attractive, sustainable employer brand.

Food businesses – from restaurants to hotels, producers to wholesalers, and agriculture to R&D – are all in a war for talent. Attracting the best talent results in outsized performance and business growth, which makes establishing an engaging food and restaurant employer brand a crucial cog in the successful management of a food organization’s human resources (HR), marketing, and operations strategy.

When recruiting costs are too high, cost per hire is skyrocketing, time to hire is increasing, or retention is falling, a comprehensive dive into your food organization’s employer brand can illuminate areas of opportunity for imminent improvement as well as strategic long-term opportunities to establish your organization as the best place to work in your industry.

Employer Branding for Food Businesses Overview

Food is a diverse and broad industry, with numerous opportunities for great talent to find their niche and add value to their employers. Food and hospitality is also crucial to the economic performance of the entire country.

This is why establishing an attractive employer brand in food is not a one-size-fits-all exercise. A leading restaurant employer brand is vastly different to a food manufacturer employer brand, which is different than a food R&D employer brand. The tactics and strategies to optimize your food organization’s employer brand and recruitment marketing efforts are tied to your organization’s unique employer value proposition (EVP) and strategic goals.
