Grubhub Partners with Indeed to Help Restaurants Staff Up

It’s no secret that the last two years have been challenging for restaurants. While indoor dining has returned in some capacity across most of the country, staffing remains a challenge for many independent restaurants. Roughly half of restaurant operators expect that recruiting and retaining workers will be their biggest challenge this year, according to the National Restaurant Association. This is why Grubhub is partnering with Indeed to help restaurants with their staffing needs.
Starting today for a limited time, restaurants in Chicago, New York, Boston and Philadelphia that sign up for Grubhub will receive a $300 Indeed credit that they can use for a sponsored job posting to help them with their hiring efforts. Restaurants drove nearly $10 billion in sales on the Grubhub marketplace last year, allowing them to continue to receive orders even when indoor dining was impacted by COVID-19. And now by teaming up with Indeed, we’re helping more restaurants not only generate additional business online, but do more hiring online as well.
“We’ve been hyper-focused on supporting restaurants over the last two years by driving more order volume and providing the tools to bring more of their business online,” says Hollis Woodlock, director of restaurant marketing at Grubhub. “This partnership with Indeed is one more way we’re supporting restaurants in their recovery and beyond. We’re taking what we hear from them and turning it into meaningful action that has a direct impact on their operations.”
Sponsoring a job on Indeed unlocks hiring tools to help employers reach candidates faster, such as Indeed’s Instant Match, which immediately shows employers a list of candidates whose resumes on Indeed fit their job descriptions. Employers who invite candidates to apply through Instant Match are 3x more likely to apply to their jobs than those who only see the job in search.
Employers can post jobs to Indeed to gain access to a variety of hiring tools such as job description templates, screening and skills assessments, and Indeed’s video interviewing platform, which helps get candidates into interviews an average of 20% faster so they can quickly make connections with quality candidates.  
Existing Grubhub restaurants in these markets who sign up for Grubhub Direct, a commission-free online ordering platform, will also be eligible for this credit in the coming weeks.
