HR and Risk & Safety Expert Exchange

A gathering of professionals just like you.

There aren’t many of us: human resources & risk and safety professionals working in the restaurant industry —charged with attracting, retaining, and developing restaurant talent in a changing and challenging world. Whether you need guidance on hiring and workforce development, safety & sanitation, OSHA claims, cultural intelligence or employment legal or insurance issues, this group is your window into what fellow restaurant industry leaders are doing and which strategies work best. 


Our members communicate year-round via a member-only Listserv. Join this email discussion group to ask your colleagues questions, share news and contribute to discussions on issues important to professionals in your field. To be eligible, you must work full-time in the field of human resources or risk and safety for a company that is a restaurant member of the National Restaurant Association. Click here to subscribe.

Expert Exchange Gatherings

Our Expert Exchange Gatherings are a way for our communities to connect virtually. These are collaborative, informal,  operator-led events, and they’re intended to touch on topics that are pressing and relevant to your jobs and to the restaurant industry as a whole. If you attend, you will get the opportunity to meet online with your peers, share, learn, and ask questions in an engaging and safe peer-to-peer environment. At a time when we cannot meet in-person, the need for connection is more important than ever. We are pleased to offer these Gatherings across all our communities on a recurring basis.

Please note the majority of our Gatherings are for National Restaurant Association members only. If you are interested in participating or curious when the next Gathering will be held, you may opt-in here to the community of your choice, and gain access to our upcoming Gatherings.
