Today, it seems like everyone is up-in-arms in one way or
another about millennials.
Now that they are the majority of the US workforce, employers are looking at how this new generation of
employees will change businesses everywhere with much
anticipation — and some nervousness.
According to a study conducted by UpWork in 2015, 53
percent of hiring managers across all industries say that
it’s difficult to find and retain millennial employees — a
challenge already facing the restaurant industry regarding
employees of all ages.
But 66 percent of millennials see themselves in a
management position of some sort within ten years (with
28 percent reporting they already are).
This tension between generations and their expectations
for the workplace is nothing new, but there are ways to
approach your younger staff that can result in better
leadership for your restaurant down the line.
