When hunger strikes, Deliveroo answers. So it’s not surprising that the employees of this London-based food delivery service have demonstrated a hunger for change. Workers stay with the company for an average of just 7.3 months before moving on. The company was established only in 2013, which partially explains why the employees who have departed haven’t had long stays. Another possible explanation? Today’s workforce is eager for new experiences.
