Case Study: Mt. Olympus Bolsters Employee Recruiting With DailyPay

One of America’s largest theme park resorts uses an on-demand payment solution to boost employee recruiting

Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park is located in Wisconsin Dells and is known to many as the waterpark capital of the world.

 

Every year companies are faced with challenges of recruiting the right candidates and retaining existing employees. High employee turnover hurts a company’s bottom line and in the amusement park industry, it costs over $4000 to replace a single employee.

 

In addition to costing companies an enormous amount of time and money, turnover reduces productivity with new hires needing one to two months on average to leverage reasonable productivity.

 

 

Creative Recruiting Ideas for Amusement Parks

 

Mt. Olympus has two pain-points in the highly competitive hiring market:

  • Attracting seasonal employees for the busy summer season that requires full capacity operations. These employees are paid hourly and are primarily high school and college students with a high absenteeism rate and a high rate of switching jobs.
  • Retaining non-seasonal consistent employees, which is an operational requirement for success all year round. These employees are paid hourly and show a high turnover rate considering the many other theme park employment options in the area.
