Employee relationships in the restaurant industry can be tenuous. Since Thrive Restaurant Group has 172 restaurants across 15 states — including about 140 Applebee’s restaurants — their HR department had little visibility into their employee culture.

Director of People Experience Renee Chaloupka recalls how difficult it was to stay connected to what was going on in every store across the country, let alone make every one of their 8,100 employees feel seen and heard. She knew Thrive’s core values — caring for each and every person that walks through their doors — could be better achieved if they had access to the right resources.
