Restaurant may have finally hit rock bottom, or perhaps, the high heavens, with employee turnover. Results from the People Report™ Q2 Workforce Index indicate that rising turnover levels, which are currently at an all-time high for management and hourly employees, may have begun to taper off, mostly because there is nowhere else to go but down.
The Workforce Index is a quarterly barometer of employment pressures that measures various components on a scale of -100 to +100. Negative values indicate decreasing levels of a component, and positive values indicate increasing levels. The strength of each value is measured by its distance from 0. The components measured include: employment levels, recruiting difficulty, job vacancies, employment expectations and turnover.
Here are some highlights from the latest Workforce Index results:
