Looking for ways to get your staff engaged in the work they are doing?
When your staff is happy, your guests are happy. It’s as simple as that. Keeping your staff engaged is key running a successful restaurant.
Here are three ways you can empower your restaurant staff:
Implement Technology Support
It’s not about replacing people with technology, its about giving them the support to do their work quick and efficiently. It’ hard enough remember orders, serving customers, and clean workstations. Technology can help your restaurant staff streamline their processes so they can focus on meeting their goals and providing the best experience for your guests.
Encourage Open Communication
Did you know that 81% of employees would rather join a company that values “open communication” than one that offers perks such as top health plans, free food, and gym membership? Creating an environment where your employees feel empowered to reach out when they need help or assistance is vital to staff retention.
Extend On the Job Training
According to HRDive, it can cost employers 33% of a worker’s annual salary to hire a replacement if that worker leaves. You value your employees and want to see them further their career, so why not offer them on the job training so they can be successful and boost their confidence. When an employee is confident in the work they are doing, they perform better and are more likely to sick around.
There are many ways you can empower your employee so make sure to take the time to invest in their success and motivate them to perform at their best.
