Compared to other industries, restaurants see one of the highest rates of staff turnover. Student employees and seasonal workers are one the biggest reasons, but despite the seasonality of the industry, a high staff turnover rate ultimately costs you money.
Hiring new staff, especially in an industry with such high turnover, is no restaurateurs favorite task. Yet it’s not something you can afford to do poorly because inefficient wait staff and staff turnover costs you money. When it comes to growing your team, remember that the harder you are on hiring, the easier managing will be for you in the future.
