First-ever worker survey will collect feedback from employees in advance of possible policy changes in 2017
PORTLAND – An online survey running through December asks Portland restaurant workers, “Does your job work for you?” The Oregon Restaurant & Lodging Association (ORLA) is conducting the Portland Restaurant Workers Survey to collect feedback from hourly staff in advance of potential policy changes that could impact Portland restaurants in 2017. The anonymous questionnaire asks about quality of life, compensation, benefits, job satisfaction and more.
The survey will allow ORLA and its members to hear directly from the people who make Portland’s red hot restaurant scene work. Little data about workin
“The survey information will help guide us in addressing current and future employee needs in our members’ restaurants,” said Lori Little, Director of Communications for ORLA. “More importantly, the data will help our members learn, through a confidential and professionally administered research process, what’s working and what’s not working due to workforce challenges.”
All hourly food service employees—including cook staff, servers and hosts—are invited to take the survey, and everyone who completes the survey to the end can enter for a chance to win one of five $100 Amazon gift cards. The survey is available online at bit.ly/2fxVs0e and takes around 10 minutes to complete. ORLA hopes for strong and diverse participation from workers across Portland over the next few weeks.
