Workforce Intelligence (formerly People Report), a Black Box Intelligence (formerly TDn2K) company, recently hosted a webinar to discuss the numerous workforce challenges currently facing the restaurant industry. Speakers included: Joni Doolin, CEO and founder of Black Box Intelligence (formerly TDn2K); Victor Fernandez, Executive Director of Insights and Knowledge at Black Box Intelligence (formerly TDn2K); Michael VanDervort, Executive Director at Cue Inc.; and Jill Van Pelt, SVP and CPO of Denny’s Corporation.

The webinar addressed a recent Workforce Intelligence (formerly People Report) survey that asked restaurant operators which labor issues were most concerning to them. The results were not surprising: recruiting, turnover and minimum wage pressures topped the list.
