HOTEL guests in Singapore can look forward to better service, especially during busy periods, with the launch of an online registry that matches casual workers to hotels.
The registry, HotelPartTimeJob.com.sg allows hotels to tap on a database of ad-hoc workers to ease their manpower crunch during peak seasons such as festive periods.
Hotel guests here can look forward to better service, especially during busy periods, with the launch of an online registry that matches casual workers to hotels.
This job matching service was jointly set up by the Singapore Hotel Association (SHA) and the Employment and Employability Institute (e2i), a National Trades Union Congress initiative (NTUC).
It was launched yesterday (July 25) at the annual productivity seminar and Employee of the Year Awards ceremony organised by SHA, NTUC and the Food, Drinks and Allied Workers’ Union.
The Minister of State for Trade and Industry, Mr Teo Ser Luck, who was the guest-of-honour at the event, highlighted the registry as an example of how the hotel industry can maximise output despite its limited manpower resource.
The SHA’s 114 hotel members, which represent 90 per cent of total gazetted hotel rooms here, can post job openings on the registry and casual workers whose available time slots match the postings will be alerted of work opportunities.
