MANPOWER SHORTAGE

RISING MANPOWER COSTS

COSTLY TRAINING

It’s easy to say that F&B business owners should raise salaries to attract and retain workers, but many do not have the financial capacity to do so, says EHL Hospitality Business School’s Guy Llewellyn.

How can you, as a F&B employer, solve this manpower issue at an efficient cost and effective training?

At SHRM College, we have the solution to help F&B companies overcome these staff shortage challenges and find the best candidate for their organizations.

jrr - job redesign reskilling

JRR for food service and food manufacturing
Up to

Food and beverage employers should undergo job redesign to enhance operational efficiency, employee satisfaction etc. By reevaluating and restructuring job roles, employers can streamline workflows, reduce inefficiencies and redundancies that often lead to wasted time and resources.

Job redesign also helps in employee satisfaction by creating more engaging and meaningful work experiences, which can reduce turnover and improve employee’s morale. Ultimately, a well-implemented job redesign fosters a more adaptable and motivated workforce, driving long-term business success in the competitive F&B industry. 

Job redesign can involve a variety of strategies such as revising job descriptions, reallocating tasks to better fit employees’ skills and strengths, implementing cross-training programs to enhance versatility, and introducing technology to automate repetitive tasks. By embracing job redesign, Food and Beverage employers can effectively adapt to changing market demands, improve service quality, and boost overall productivity. It is crucial for employers to involve employees in the job redesign process, seeking their input and feedback to ensure that the changes implemented are beneficial for both the company and its workforce. This collaborative approach can foster a culture of innovation and continuous improvement within the organization, positioning it for sustained growth and success in the dynamic F&B landscape.
