A lot has changed — yet making customers happy remains the priority for restaurants. Offering contact-less delivery, curbside pick up options, and online ordering and reservations all require the right employees. And, with compensation budgets tight, you have to make sure your strategy supports your long-term goals. With the right market data, keep and attract top talent, so that your restaurant is ready for the future.

  • 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?
