Harri announces integration with Facebook job posting API

Harri, an end-to-end workforce operating system designed for the unique needs of the hospitality industry, recently announced the launch of its integration with Facebook’s job posting tool.

As one of the launch partners leveraging Facebook’s API, Harri is giving clients yet another way to attract talent with automatic job posting to the Facebook network of two billion monthly active users. This integration streamlines the hiring workflow and provides a seamless experience for Harri clients and Facebook users alike.

Using the Harri x Facebook connection, employers’ open positions will be posted on Facebook via Harri’s Job Distributor tool, which gets jobs in front of millions with just one click.

“The competition for hospitality talent is fierce, and millennial talent—which make[s] up 83 percent of the hospitality market—needs to be approached differently,” said Luke Fryer, Harri’s CEO and founder, in an earlier interview. “Not only do social platforms like Facebook have tremendous reach, but they allow employees to tap into their networks to create inbound interest. In the case of Facebook, we're tapping into a network of 2 billion people—including job seekers who fit the demographic that are most apt to be applying for hospitality jobs.”

Facebook’s product manager for jobs, Gaurav Dosi, announced the new integration on September 28 at the TAtech conference in Denver, which focuses on the talent acquisition and recruitment solutions.

“40 percent of U.S. small businesses report that filling jobs was more difficult than they expected, which is challenging when you consider that these small businesses also employ nearly half of the country’s workforce,” Dosi said in a statement provided to Harri by Facebook. “Facebook’s goal is to take the work out of finding a local job and hiring the right people. This partnership with Harri is another way we’re making the process even easier for people and businesses alike.”

The integration of the Harri platform with the Facebook network has already been completed, allowing Harri clients in the U.S. to leverage this powerful partnership effective immediately. U.K. clients will be able to leverage this partnership in Q4 2017.
