" are already registered on the platform, said at a press point Thierry Grégoire, president of the seasonal branch of Umih, the main organization in the sector which worked for two years with the company HCR Emploi to create the platform of the same name.
It is now that hoteliers and restaurateurs are recruiting, because the French are starting to book (for their summer vacation).
We have a huge number of job requests.
And each summer, the sector needs 300,000 seasonal workers,
”he said, also recalling that“
100,000 jobs are not filled each year
A stimulus tool
The platform is seen as a “
tool for relaunching the activity
” by the Umih: after months of closure, restaurant owners were able to reopen their terraces on May 19 and will be able to welcome indoors customers without gauge from June 30. . In addition to putting companies in touch with candidates, HCR Emploi - whose service costs 49 euros for the first thousand establishments that subscribe, 79 euros for the following ones - is also intended to be a "
human resources tool
" with signature of contracts, time slips or pay slips. The platform offers "
maximum legal security in the drafting of employment contracts
" so that "
business leaders focus on their job and not on recruiting.
90% of our member companies are VSEs with less than 11 employees,
”emphasizes Thierry Grégoire.
Success expected in the coming weeks
This tool "
is timely, the coming weeks are decisive with the summer season, we think there will be a craze for the use of the platform
", estimates Paul-Henri Antonmattei, professor of labor law at the 'University of Montpellier which participated in the project. According to him, the pandemic "
has created some doubts, when you do not know when you will resume ... but this uncertainty is being erased. The platform will accelerate the return of these people and convince those tempted to go elsewhere to return
”to the hotel and catering industry.
