In a tight labor market, it's not only about getting enough workers, but about getting enough workers with the right skill sets. The dynamics of the financial and labor markets, coupled with social, political, and technological changes, invites reflection on best practices for recruiting and retaining great employees. This joint research project between IFDA and St. Joseph's University explores what college students think about as they explore career options.
 
The research focuses on insight into students' career preparation, what factors they value when seeking employment, and their awareness of and interest in the foodservice distribution industry. Data gathering included a survey, a focus group, informal interviews, and observations. 

Price: IFDA members receive free access to this research paper, and a webinar recording and PPT with highlights.
