So, JPR turned to Tim, an expert in connecting talent with jobs through a workforce management technology to see if the headlines are true, how hotels and restaurants can reimagine their talent management, and gain some insights on a nationwide survey Jitjatjo distributed to its 10,000 plus data base of talent.
