“The only thing worse than training your employees and having them leave is not training them and having them stay.”
– Henry Ford
Did you know that the average cost to hire and train a restaurant, grocery, or hospitality employee can range from $1,500 to more than $9,000, depending on the pay rate.
This doesn’t account for the disruption in workflow, the time it takes to develop customized training for each position, and facilitation of the training itself either by someone on staff or an outside consultant.
In addition, turnover rates in the restaurant and accommodations sector continues to rise, and in 2016 topped out at 70 percent!
Student and seasonal staffing increases turnover rates, as does lower paying positions throughout the hospitality industry where moving between jobs is more common. However, hiring and onboarding these employees doesn’t require less screening, paperwork, or training.
