We Just Made Measuring Sales and Social Easy!
In 1995, an imaginative and committed group of human resource and operating executives from five leading restaurant chains agreed to "share" and, more importantly, to "benchmark" the key HR statistics and workforce trends that were so critical to success and profitability.
In response, Joni Thomas Doolin and a small team of analysts and HR executives designed and launched the survey that became the foundation for the People Report consortium. Today this consortium includes hundreds of brands and represents millions of employees. Recognized by the industry as a savvy and trusted research partner, People Report has evolved throughout a period of increasingly competitive business cycles to provide the information, insight and best practices that members need to grow and thrive.
Today the People Report community connects employees from the "dishroom to the boardroom," and provides the relevant workforce analytics that drive best in class performance.
