Barworks: Attracting Talent in the Hospitality Industry

AUCKLAND – This week Synchrony Global proudly shared the stage with Barworks Hospitality Group at the National HR Summit, New Zealand to discuss the group’s journey in quantifying and achieving the benefits of their SAP SuccessFactors investment. 

“Attracting talent to the hospitality industry is a challenge. To be able to grow and improve our recruitment experience for candidates, we needed to be at the forefront of recruitment and work eligibility compliance,” said Danielle Cook, People and Performance Manager for the Barworks Hospitality Group.

“That’s why we chose SAP SuccessFactors. Now the system is working really well, our recruitment is efficient and our employee onboarding process is completely paperless. Plus, we’re using Jam to engage staff and collaborate between all our different venues…even our managing director is posting updates!”

Barworks Hospitality Group is one of New Zealand’s largest hospitality companies, operating 20 venues Auckland wide and serving thousands of customers every week. Barworks runs a unique model in New Zealand hospitality, helping others take an ownership stake in the business they run, with lots of our venues having a co-owner on site.
