Why Teens Don’t Want to Work in Hospitality
Why don’t teens want to work in hospitality? The hospitality industry as a whole is having a difficult time attracting this demographic because it is competing for talent within a pool of workers that are looking for a company that offers a lot of flexibility in their time.
“Some teens want to work as many hours as possible, while others are looking to strike a balance between work, school and extracurricular activities ,” said Will Eadie, VP of sales and strategy, WorkJam.

“That said, giving teen workers the ability to participate in their choice of schedule is crucial. In addition, many of the teens who choose to work in a hotel are looking for a fast track to a career. If they don’t sense opportunity for career advancement, there’s a high likelihood they’ll leave for another position.”

Goodbye Employee Performance Reviews -- Hello Better Communication

How despised are employee performance reviews? A 2014 Human Capital Institute (HCI) study found it was the second most hated activity after firing people -- and few people think they work.

It’s no surprise, then, that companies have been ditching the dreaded annual performance review.
In its place, they’re bringing managers, employees and team members together for weekly, monthly or quarterly performance conversations. 

The HCI survey shows organizations that develop and support managers as coaches and mentors (as opposed to judges) report greater financial success and satisfaction with the performance management process.
