The district manager of Sodexo was faced with the task of increasing the company’s staffing levels in its food-service operations within the Ontario Power Generation plant facilities. He knew his team was anxious about the prospect of hiring more food-service workers in order to deal with the anticipated increase in the number of customers served. Such a recruitment initiative would be challenging given the perception that all possible recruitment channels had already been explored.
