How Côte Brasserie improved employee turnover with an engagement first approach.

1 Aug 2019 - Resource

Improving employee turnover at Côte Brasserie.

Côte restaurants are inspired by the brasseries and bistros of Paris, with relaxed all-day dining serving authentic French classics made from great quality. Founded in Wimbledon in 2007, the group is now 100 restaurants strong, with a workforce of 3500 employees.

Côte approached People Insight when they were looking to solve their employee turnover rate which stood at 99% of employees leaving and being replaced within a year.

This case study explores how Côte:

  • Switched their focus from recruitment to retention
  • Created an internal appetite for change
  • Involved the whole organisation in action planning
  • Reduced staff turnover to 80%

“We chose People Insight because they ticked all our boxes. Given the high competition for talent, we wanted to compare our results against a pure hospitality benchmark which People Insight could provide. With their experience in the sector, they understood how we operate, and could provide suitable insights, analysis and advice.”

Kirsten Price, Talent Director – Côte Brasserie
