Eat'n Park Restaurants has been recognized nationally for its ability to hold onto its employees.

Transforming Data into Knowledge, or TDn2K, presented Eat'n Park with the 2018 Best Practices Award in the category of Family Dining. Companies were evaluated on hourly and management retention, compensation, diversity and year-over-year improvement.

The Best Practices Awards recognize consistently superior performance results among hundreds of companies tracked by TDn2K, parent company of People Report and provider of workforce analytics for the food service industry.

The Homestead-based Eat'n Park has one of the lowest employee turnover rates in the entire restaurant industry — more than 400 employees have been with the company for 25 years or more.

“At the heart of our family-owned company are more than 5,000 team members. Their passion and commitment to our community and to providing outstanding services creates smiles for our guests and, ultimately, drives our success,” says Karen Bolden, chief people officer for Eat'n Park Restaurants.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
