Meet Sodexo

Workforce Challenge

Recruiting in the food service industry is challenging because there are more jobs than there are qualified people to fill them. “Post-and-Pray” wasn’t attracting the talent Sodexo needed.

Workforce Solution

Business Services staff at the American Job Center (AJC) helped educate our company on competitive pay rates for the food service industry in 2015, and we negotiated some adjustments. The staff also optimized our hiring events held at the AJC by sending out emails to qualified job seekers registered in Connecting Colorado, notifying them of our job openings and great benefits.

Outcomes & Benefits

Our recruiting results since engaging with American Job Centers along the Front Range have improved 10-fold! We have made literally dozens of hires with more candidates actively in the job interview process today. We now have access to active job seekers and can search for talent on ConnectingColorado.com independently. Staff even offered to come out and train us on how to maximize the value of using the software!
