Welcome to the Career Can Do podcast, a show dedicated to helping you navigate the new work world. Host Mary Ann Faremouth, bestselling author of Revolutionary Recruiting and Revolutionary Reinvention, chats with experts in the business and recruiting industries and shares tips to help you realize your career goals.

This week’s guest is Jessica Levine, General Manager of Jonathan’s The Rub restaurant at Memorial Green. Jonathan’s is a family-run, award-winning restaurant. Jessica says that one key to their success is that they create a “Cheers effect, where everybody knows your name”. She tells Mary Ann that restaurants face three hurdles post-COVID: attracting guests back, getting employees to return to work, and better access to inventory. She shares how Jonathan’s has been able to overcome these challenges successfully. 

Mary Ann asks Jessica how they have been able to maintain such low employee turnover. Jessica responds that it boils down to treating their employees like family. Their healthcare plan is also a big incentive for employees to stay, she adds. If more restaurants offered healthcare benefits, fewer workers would leave.
