Customer Retention - Listen to them

Today, is the day of the most digitally empowered customers! Your guests/customers don't like the experience at your restaurant, they will actively look out to voice their opinion. If the medium they choose to do so is on the internet forums (like Zomato, Yelp etc), then we have a problem. Negative word-of-mouth. This again leads to the dreadful phenomenon of Customer churn. Which means, you need to spent a lot more on advertising  than to grow your customer base Automatically. So now what?…

Is millennial job-hopping really a problem?

The response to this week's installment of "Ask a Millennial," which dealt with the "crisis" of job hopping among millennials, was robust. One commenter questioned whether one of our respondents, who had had three jobs in four years but didn't think of herself as a hopper, knew how to define job hopping. Others said it wasn't a millennial problem -- a bad economy or a shop in trouble may force people to job hop just so they can survive.
