What does Generation Z Want from a Job?
With restaurants facing historic labor shortages, employers need to find creative ways to attract and retain a new generation of workers - Generation Z - to help fill these job openings. Learn more about how one industry giant is tackling this latest impact of COVID and find out ways you can make this hiring shift work for you.
Do you want to appeal to a younger demographic? Want to get people talking about you? Maybe you want to attract an ultra-cool influencer or celebrity customer? If you do, rebranding and becoming a “fun” company may be just the way to get more attention.
Why are we suggesting “fun?" With Gen Y being the largest generation in the U.S. in 2019, with an estimated population of 72.1 million, they have strong purchasing power. They also enjoy experiences and tend to tell others about products and businesses they like. If you want more customers, becoming a “fun” business with an identifiable tone and brand, can help you build a loyal audience that enjoys talking about you.
The Department of Labor & Industries filed an emergency rule to provide increased protection for employees exposed to extreme heat, including those working in agriculture, construction and other outdoor industries. The new regulations supplement existing rules. When temperatures are at or above 100 degrees, employers must respond to the extreme heat by:
Providing shade or another sufficient means for employees to cool down; and
Ensuring workers have a paid cool-down rest period of at least 10 minutes every two hours.
When temperatures are at or above 89 degrees, employers must:
Provide water that is cool enough to drink safely;
Allow and encourage workers to take additional paid preventative cool-down rest to protect from overheating;
Have a written outdoor heat exposure safety program and provide training to employees; and
Respond appropriately to any employee with symptoms of heat-related illness.
The emergency rules update existing rules that are in place annually from May through the end of September. The existing rules already require ready access to at least one quart of drinking water per worker per hour, an outdoor heat exposure safety program with training, and an appropriate response to workers who are experiencing heat-related illness symptoms.
