Expert Roundtable April 30, 2020
In February of this year, restaurants staffed hosts, servers, bartenders, and chefs with the goal of creating a one-of-a-kind dining experience for each guest. In March of this year, restaurants found their doors closed with the exception of take-out and delivery services. Gone were the days of a bustling restaurant and conversations echoing in the dining room. If a restaurant was lucky enough to retain staff, those servers suddenly switched roles to positions such as delivery drivers and took on responsibilities that neither the employer or employee ever planned for.
Listen to our session to hear from HigherMe's CEO, Derek Williamson, on how their customers have been handling these adjustments in real-time. Derek was a multi-unit franchise operator for almost a decade and experienced first-hand the challenges of hiring and managing employees in a high-turnover industry. He took that knowledge and passion to help people find the perfect job while making it easier for restaurants to hire great employees.
Derek was joined by Checkr's Industry Expert, Scott Jennings. Scott has over 20 years of experience working with companies of all sizes to implement HR solutions. He is in daily conversations with companies as they re-think their workforce, compliance, and how to face this new reality.
