ON THE FLY – OCTOBER EDITION

 

Recently, the CRA Board of Directors spent nearly an entire day talking about upcoming legislative issues, our government affairs strategy, and reviewed several ballot initiatives that will impact the restaurant industry. Hear a brief overview of the positions taken by the board, and why. We have a long ballot for November’s election, we encourage you all to take time to carefully review every initiative and candidate and strongly consider how they will impact this important industry, and PLEASE take time to vote. In other news, did you know that the CRA has one of the few Pinnacol Safety Group programs in the state? This program offers discounts and dividends for keeping a safe work environment.

ARE YOU READY FOR THE HUGE DEMOGRAPHIC CHALLENGE COMING OUR WAY?

Recently, the National Restaurant Educational Foundation released original research results examining what Gen Z wants in a restaurant career. With job openings in restaurants at a record high, and millions of Gen Zers slated to enter the workforce, the study was designed to explore the relationship between younger generations and the industry, in order to see if and where the desires of these younger generations overlap with what the industry has to offer.
