How Organizations Are Harnessing The Wisdom Of Baby Boomers To Combat Skills Shortages

The baby boomer generation is defined by Pew Research Center as people born between 1946 and 1964. This population has given most western economies a pronounced economic premium since the 1970s. A recent report from Bain’s Macro Trends group suggests that the premium is beginning to fade out, however, as growing numbers of boomers enter retirement. There has been a lot of discussion around the impact of this in a societal context, whether regarding the shifting "dependency ratio" or the rise in healthcare expenditure as large numbers enter into retirement, but the transition of the boomer generation is also likely to have…

Is your restaurant ‘all in’ on hospitality?

Is your restaurant 'all in' on hospitality? Diners and workers are both guests, after all Jenna Telesca, Nations Restaurant News As a kid, I spent a lot of time eating Sunday dinners at my grandparents’ house on Long Island. The menu was always the same: penne pasta, homemade sauce, bread with butter, salad in a wood bowl with special dressing that I sometimes helped make, and meatballs/sausage.  For dessert — coffee and hard cookies, maybe a cake. You shouldn’t be stingy on dessert, after all. Knowing what to expect from the meal was comforting. Why change what works? There was…

HOW QUICK-SERVE RESTAURANTS ARE SCALING THE FOOD CHAIN By Jessica Wohl.  Lisa Mason stood outside a Chicago restaurant at 9:15 a.m. on a recent sunny Monday, where she would continue to wait for two hours.

    Hospitality Recruiters are Your Career Coach!

    A few months ago, I received an email notification that someone sent me a message on my linked in profile. It was from a recruiter, Daniel, basically saying, if I was looking for an opportunity, to give him a reply back. I get these a lot, and turn down the offers after thanking them for reaching out. I can’t say why I decided to entertain this recruiter, but I did. After two messages, we agreed on a time to speak. We spoke about my occupational background his background and opportunities that he had, if I was interested. The concepts that he spoke about were great, but the thing that struck me is, he wasn’t forcing me to make a decision. It was comfortable. I sent him my resume, which I thought how it was written was great. When he sent it back to me revised, I was put in my place real quick. I saw why he does what he does for a living, and I told him that. Well fast forward to getting into the lineup of potential managers for a concept, Daniel was encouraging, enlightening, and “cool as the other side of the pillow”. He was a great communicator with me concerning the brand, their background, where they are headed. He sent information to look over to better prepare me for each step I would take in the interview process. All this without asking, Daniel would even call or text to see how I was doing, and how the process was going. He even told me to call if I had any concerns or just wanted to talk, which I did utilize and we chatted for about 30-40 minutes one night. So all in all, I was picked as the new Culinary Manager for the concept. I am about to go to training in a few days, and he still reached out to me after the job was done. That’s something I didn’t experience with my last recruiter. Daniel, is definitely a great asset to Patrice and Associates, and with this being my first experience with them I can say I was impressed. Thank You Patrice and Associates and definitely thank you Daniel. -Darrell Muir     Career Coaches that help you for FREE Hospitality Recruiters are Your Career Coach!
