The Shocking Cost of Restaurant Staff Turnover
Do you know what your turnover is doing to your annual profit?
It’s crushing it.
With the employee turnover rate for the restaurant industry at 75% for the second consecutive year it must feel like you never have time to do what you’re good at; running a restaurant!
Not only is staff turnover time consuming, stressful and more than likely to cause you to work every day of the week, it is also expensive.
The estimated turnover for regular line employees is closer to 110%. By doing some simple math, that level of turnover will cost the average full service restaurant operator $146,600 annually
What is the real cost of turnover in your restaurant?
Even if you defy the national average, it’s still a staggering amount and on average it’s costing restaurants close to $150K annually.
I don’t know about you, but I’m a big fan of profit. If you told me I could add $35,000 to my bottom line, my first question would be how?

How Your Competition Reduces Staff Turnover
Here are a couple things you should consider if you want to retain your employees and improve your bottom line…
1. PRIORITIZE ONBOARDING AND TRAINING
There is no doubt that employee training has been an increasing priority in recent years.
In a 2019 LinkedIn survey, 94% of employees indicated that they would stay at a company longer if it invested in helping them learn.
Given that this survey was taken before the COVID-19 pandemic and that it focused on job-related training, a question arises: What, if any, changes in training should employers undertake now?
Mr. Tomato provides an innovative approach to learning:
- Artificial intelligence algorithms
- And much more
2. ENCOURAGE COMMUNICATION AND FEEDBACK
A one-way line of communication from managers to staff is a recipe for low employee satisfaction. Employees feel valued when they feel like their voices are heard. Show that you care about your employees by addressing their concerns.
Mr. Tomato’s chat system provides managers with a unique platform to directly advise staff of any updates, events, new appointments, customer feedback and keep the conversations active.
