Specifically, reporting features and third-party integrations are restaurant POS features that have risen in importance according to industry research.

How to Become an Employer of Choice During the Great Resignation

Companies across the United States are having trouble hiring employees. What started in 2019 with millions of Americans leaving their jobs for other opportunities has blossomed into a full-on game of musical chairs. As the pandemic subsides, an estimated 1 in 4 workers has plans to look for new opportunities, according to a recent Prudential Financial Pulse of the American Worker survey. Those jobs are stretching across every industry but have hit restaurants especially hard.

Unfortunately, for restaurants that were already feeling the squeeze from a lack of workers, the pandemic and subsequent recovery have left them reeling. Job seekers wield an incredible amount of power right now, and restaurants need to prove they have what it takes to keep people happy.
