Restaurants have made remarkable changes to keep customer satisfaction top of mind. Offering contactless delivery, curbside pick-up, online ordering, and spacing reservations require considerate customer care. Restaurant employees directly represent your organization every time they interact with customers. The competition for good talent is intense, but with the right market data, you can make better decisions to keep and attract top employees and better prepare your company for the future of the restaurant industry.

The restaurant module of the US Retail Compensation and Benefits Survey provides compensation data across more than 116,000 employee observations. Compare your HR practices against those of other organizations, for items such as:

  • Benefit eligibility
  • Incentive award policies
  • Paid-time off, vacation, and sick leave
  • Recruiting and retention practices
  • Turnover
Do you have the market data to rethink your compensation strategy?
