Over the past few months I have had several recruiters and restauranteurs reach out to me, as they are finding it increasingly difficult to find great managers. Nashville is also experiencing unprecedented growth, which is making the issue of staffing even more difficult. So it was no surprise to me that the People Report 2016 Q1 Workforce Index, which measures expected market pressures on restaurant employment, rose again this quarter to 76.4.
And barring any economic disasters, restaurant operators will continue to face staffing challenges, such as increased vacancies, recruiting difficulty at peak levels and high turnover in 2016. This past labor day, I wrote about the importance of "treating your staff well," and it could not be more important today! Successful restaurants will be those that can maneuver through these difficult staffing times - those that can effectively retool operations to reduce the number of staff members needed at any one time - and those who invest in their employees and managers, creating opportunities to attract and retain the best people. Matrix Restaurant Consulting can help you retool your operation and to become that employer of choice.
