Free webinar to offer tips for recruitment, retention

Ask any restaurateur what their number one issue in- house is and they’re likely to say recruitment and retention. Though more restaurant roles are being filled than during the pandemic, hiring is still proving difficult for many restaurants.

And once you get a good employee, how to you keep them? Money isn’t enough anymore. Today’s workers are savvier than ever. They want flexible working hours, caring managers and teamwork.

In a 30-minute webinar titled “3 Steps to Level Up Your 2023 People Strategy,” Jack Hannah, vice president of HourWork, will take a look a 2023 QSR retention trends, data and predictions. He’ll offer three tips to level up a restaurant’s people strategy and five ways to make a restaurant’s managers great.

Hannah has had hundreds of conversations with owners, franchisees and operators and will offer some great advice during this free webinar.

“Most restaurant owners and leaders tell me their people leave for $.50 or $1 more an hour at a restaurant down the road. HourWork data shows team members are actually leaving twice as often because of poor management than poor pay. I’m excited to share what some of the best restaurant managers are doing to drive down turnover and keep their people happy and engaged longer!”

The webinar will be held May 25 at 2 p.m. ET. Click here to register for free.
