Two Chicks, Three Seats Episode 47: Attracting Generation Z as Employees in the Hospitality Industry


The hiring process has been a big topic of discussion for many restaurants right now as they look to rebuild their staff after the past year. Since so many establishments are in the same position, hiring in the industry is more competitive than normal in many places. Employees want to impress potential employers, but restaurants also want to attract talented workers.

In today’s episode of Tripleseat’s podcast Two Chicks, Three Seats, my co-host Kate Kennedy and I discuss why your restaurant should consider looking at hiring Generation Z as employees in the hospitality industry. As a younger generation, Gen Zers (also known as Zoomers) are an asset to bring within your restaurant for their bright, fresh, and trendy energy and perspectives. And with the current climate of the hospitality industry in a bit of a rehiring labor struggle to some degree, this information is important to hear!

Take a listen to learn more about Gen Z, what motivates them, why they would bring talent to your restaurant staff, and how your restaurant can attract this age group.
