Leading Caterers of America

What leadership style works with all generations, and when used effectively, results in higher employee engagement, increased levels of employee loyalty, and low turnover? Command and control? Servant leadership? Transformational? Academic researchers have discovered that the Authentic Leadership model is the most desired model in the workplace today—for all generations. Tasty Catering has been the subject of six doctoral dissertations as well as several academic journal articles for their innovative approach to culture, employee engagement and leadership. Tasty's innovative approach to those three areas turned an ordinary catering business into a very high-performance organization with 90% employee engagement and 4% turnover.

As a result of the change the American Psychological Association named Tasty Catering the psychologically healthiest workplace in the US. In addition, Inc. Magazine, Wall Street Journal and Forbes Magazine named Tasty Catering a top workplace.
