Toronto – In the face of ongoing labour shortages in the foodservice industry and the struggle to recruit the right talent, Restaurants Canada has formed a new partnership with Thomas International, a company that helps businesses recruit, retain and develop the right employees.

Through this partnership, Restaurants Canada explained in a news release, its members will receive preferred access to the Thomas International Personality Profile Assessment, a personality test that employers administer to evaluate candidates’ character traits thoroughly to determine whether they will be a proper fit for the job. In just eight minutes, the Thomas International assessment will give employers powerful insight into their candidates and their fit to a specific job role, which enhances the quality of hires and increases retention.“Many businesses today struggle to find the right talent. Through these straightforward, easy to understand assessments, we hope to give those who do any type of hiring a leg up to ensure they are recruiting the right people for the position,” said Christopher Barry, director of membership at Restaurants Canada.With this partnership, Restaurants Canada members will receive:

  • up to 60 per cent off on the internationally recognized Thomas Personality Performance Assessment tool
  • exclusive access to a job library of over 20 foodservice job descriptions in order to speed up the hiring process
  • customized webinar training to optimize the use of assessments

“Our reliable, valid and unbiased assessments provide powerful insights, giving businesses the knowledge and predictive science to recruit, retain, develop and manage their people with confidence,” said Merle Ballaigues, president of Thomas International.

Thomas International’s program is designed to help restaurants recruit the right people, improve communication among their team, motivate and engage staff, and manage overall performance.
