Traditionally, restaurants are filled with holiday parties and celebrations, and staff are expected to leave their emotions at the door. This year, there’s also the added pressure of closures, lockdowns, physical distancing, and other impacts from the pandemic. For this webinar, we’ll be discussing the current climate of our industry, sharing openly about how we're managing, and offering up helpful tools.
