Fourth Enterprises Recent Developments

"After the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak in 2020, Fourth launched their in-app health survey that enables operators to efficiently track the health of their employees to ensure all measures are taken to safely staff their sites when the industry reopens. The new feature, which is securely accessible for employees via the Fourth app, asks employees a series of questions on their current health so that operators can establish if they are fit to work ahead of their shift. The questions will be asked daily and are in line with the latest NHS advice and Government guidance on return to work protocol for the hospitality industry.

In September 2018, Fourth acquired Choice HR, a well-established American full-service Payroll, Benefits, and HR Services business that serves the complex needs of the hospitality sector. Its 400 customers include leading brands like PDQ, Metro Diner, Beef Brady's, Ford's Garage, and World of Beer."
