It's a special edition of your Fast Delivery today as we discuss restaurant labor and some possible options for employers to fill the shortage and keep their establishment running smoothly. .
First, Bistro 633 located in Bromont found a very special way to keep its employees: the boss sold them shares and they became co-owners! Luc Viens, who has run the establishment for nine years, considered divesting himself of his restaurant during the pandemic but instead opted to sell a first wave of shares to his employees. These should not be considered as financial partners only. They will be involved in the decisions and, depending on the course, other actions could be put up for sale. By offering them this privilege, the owner ensures that the recipe for success remains the same as before, because employees and shareholders already care about Bistro 633.
Secondly, Luc Viens mentions despite everything that he has no choice but to turn to immigration to fill important positions in the kitchen, and has been doing so for a few years now.
Moreover, a group of owners wants immigration rules to be positively reviewed so that they can contribute more quickly to the hiring of qualified personnel. For the moment, a long process, usually between four and five months, is necessary before the employer can finally welcome his new employee. In addition to speeding up the process, leaders would like to see the thresholds raised and the criteria lowered somewhat – only when it comes to qualified personnel.
Obviously, turning to immigration is the last resort for employers. They are trying by all means to first attract a Canadian workforce by increasing wages and paying particular attention to working hours and conditions. And since they cannot find it in their own course, they have no choice but to turn to immigration.
Finally, the fast food chain McDonald's, a renowned employer in the restaurant industry, has announced its colors in recent weeks: putting McDonald's on your resume pays off! The channel currently has 20,000 positions to fill and targets young people and students. To do this, it offers them flexible hours adapted to their lessons, sports and other hobbies.
During the job interview, managers will remind young candidates that working at McDo means gaining experience in teamwork, human relations, communication, listening and empathy. These skills are showcased when a headhunter later makes eye contact with him when it's time to launch his career in his field of study. Former McDonald's employees therefore receive special attention.
Also, McDonald's does a lot for its employees, in particular with the Arks of Knowledge training program, a continuing education program allowing the managers of its branches to obtain course equivalences in programs leading to a diploma in administration. business through association with 30 colleges and universities across Canada.
