Finding employees as the pandemic continues is difficult already. Unemployment is paying people more than minimum wage, so it's easy for them to make the choice; risk getting a deadly virus, or work an hourly job? It’s not like we can blame them, either. Everyone is making the choice that is best for them and their families, what’s best for their health.
We know you’re thinking, “I still need employees to run my restaurant! How can I get them to come in to work?” It’s simple really; make your job more appealing and worth the risk. Make sure that you advertise all of these accommodations in any job postings or listings you have:
If your store follows through with all of these choices, not only will your store retain employees for longer, it will create a more positive workplace culture in the long run. Even after COVID is gone, your employees will remember how you worked to protect them during these hard months. However, there is one more step a business should consider to retain employees. Increasing pay, especially if your starting salary is minimum wage, will bring in workers. Your job has to be worth the health risk at hand, and if it’s not, people will make the logical decision to continue their unemployment checks. They’re not lazy, they are making the best decision at the moment, and if a job will not prioritize a worker’s health and a living wage, no one will work anytime soon.
