Four Generations, One Restaurant = Challenge and Opportunity for Restaurant Managers and Executives

For the first time in the history of the US restaurant industry, four distinctly different employee generations are working side by side. This is true in independent restaurants as well as national and international chains. Each of the four employee generations—Gen Y, Generation X, Baby Boomers, and Matures—is guided by their own set of beliefs and values, preferences and priorities. Sometimes these differences work well together (think: Trivial Pursuit teams) and sometimes they simply fail to…See More

"Jason, Great information. It is important to realize that people from different generations are motivated much differently. The manager who can relate to each group is truly "the master of managing his/her people.""

"This is a challenge created by the often-disparaged (and appropriately so) US health delivery system. People are living and functioning longer--imagine what the issues would be if health were really a public good delivered efficiently without the…"

Biography
Jason Ryan Dorsey, The Gen Y Guy(R), is a bestselling author, acclaimed keynote speaker, and award-winning entrepreneur (www.JasonDorsey.com)...and it all began with his first job as a restaurant busboy...

My first "real" job was as a busboy at Macaroni Grill. I leaned on this experience when I wrote my first bestselling career book at age 18. The most popular page in that book was a diagram on how to tie a tie--which I learned in that first "real" job! I followed my first book with four more including my newest book, Y-Size Your Business: How Gen Y Employees Can Save You Money and Grow Your Business. You can read two free chapters from Y-Size at www.Ysize.com. Along the way I've appeared as a Gen Y expert on 60 Minutes, 20/20, The Today Show, The View and delivered about 2,000 keynotes around the world. You can see highlights from my speaking on YouTube or on my homepage, www.JasonDorsey.com. My current focus is bridging the four generations in the workplace and marketplace, with an emphasis on Gen Y. I believe our current multigenerational environment will be a growing challenge or a strategic opportunity depending entirely how business leaders respond.
Years in the Industry
Gen Y author and generational keynote speaker for 13 years.

Hiring Gen Y Makes Dollars and Sense in the Restaurant Industry

"Why should I hire Gen Y? In this economy I have lots of options on who I want to hire." Restaurant and business leaders ask me some variation of this question every day. Then they start in with their stories about employing people in my generation, Gen Y, aka Millennials. One of my recent favorites: “Last year I hired a young guy right out of college. He had good grades and seemed like a hard worker. A week later I’m in the company bathroom and I hear him talking on his cell phone in a… Continue
