Join HR Annie Consulting’s Summer Manager and HR Training Series, perfect for anyone looking to enhance their management skills to build a better team.

Staffing in the hospitality industry has never been easy, but over the last year or so, it’s certainly been top of mind for many employers. We get it. Hiring is expensive and a considerable cost to any business owner — which is why we’re constantly bringing innovative tools for employers to better manage their hiring process.

But staffing doesn’t stop after you make a great hire. You also need to ensure your staff is happy working for you, so they stick around longer. Employee Retention is a vital part of staffing that should never be overlooked, and healthy employee retention stems from your management style. Managers play a major role in creating a positive work environment and trust me, there is always room to improve.

If you want to grow in your management role and learn how to support a healthy team at your restaurant, then investing in HR Annie Consulting’s flexible Summer Manager and HR Training Series is a must!
