The simple fact is that all of complaining about paying foodservice workers $15 an hour has reinforced that thinking in the minds-eye of the foodservice worker that their employer really does not care about them. Johnson, went on to say that restaurant owners, going to TV saying they can’t get any workers when they are offering them only part-time work without benefits will not help. In fact, it hurts the industry and that specific employer.
Employees want to know that they are wanted, needed, and apricated. That means they want to be given a path forward not a path to the next job. In fact, a recent survey from retail operations platform Zipline finds that current retail employees feel their company could be doing significantly more to keep their existing workers from heading for the exit door.
Among the survey's findings:
· 42% of retail associates are considering or planning to leave the industry.
· 24% of associates think retailers are doing enough to retain talent and build the workforce they need.
· 52% of associates are satisfied in the investment that stores are making in their professional development.
· 43% of associates said they don't feel heard when making suggestions of in-store changes.
