Background Checks: What Restaurant Owners Should Know

As restaurant owners and managers can attest to, there's a high turnover rate in the restaurant industry.

As restaurant owners and managers can attest to, there's a high turnover rate in the restaurant industry. Historically speaking, the turnover rate, as reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor, has been as high as 80.9 percent (2007) and as low as 56.6 percent (2010). The latest statistics show the turnover rate hovering around 66 percent, which is more than 20 percent higher than the private sector. This means you're likely to hire managers, servers and bartenders often throughout the year.

You need to run background checks on those applying for jobs at your restaurant to ensure you're hiring the best people. Even if you overlook those who have felonies on their records, you will want to know why they served time. Background check services can be pricey, but you can find one that suits your needs and isn't too expensive.

Basic background checks
