The Importance of Workplace Culture in the Restaurant Industry

Culture within the Workplace:

 

Every day is a new adventure when it comes to restaurant management recruiting, and every day I speak with numerous leaders seeking new career opportunities. Through these talks, I learn about the shared passions, goals, and desires of leaders in restaurant industry. It is an integral part of my job that I pinpoint exactly what talented leaders are lacking in their current positions to best help them find jobs that fit their individual needs. Most managers I speak with stress their need to find a position at a company whose culture is defined by their outstanding treatment of employees.

 

IF YOU ASSURE A CULTURE THAT FOCUSES ON THE INTERNAL TEAM, SUCCESS WILL FALL INTO PLACE

 

Managers are constantly seeking positions within companies that promote open workplace communication, provide ongoing feedback, and encourage employee recognition. Leaders aspire to work for restaurants that offer ongoing development and a work/life balance that recognizes that employees have passions and obligations outside of work. In essence, restaurant managers are most passionate about finding positions within companies whose workplace cultures are built on ensuring their employees are offered continual support, growth, and respect.

 

A CULTURE BUILT AROUND ENSURING THE SUCCESS OF ITS EMPLOYEES BREEDS SUCCESS ON ALL FRONTS!

 

It is no surprise that a company’s culture can often times be the driving force for success. It’s clear that the team becomes a reflection of the company vision. Feeling confident in a positive culture breeds innovative & reliable insight supporting ongoing sales & operational enhancements. Promoting team participation & offering ongoing recognition, motivation & learning provides the avenue to develop leaders that share the business vision. Positive momentum in sales, buy in on cost effectiveness and long term tenure are clear ingredients in a recipe for success!

To be a successful as a Hospitality Recruiter, it is of the utmost importance that I seek out and work with companies whose workplace cultures align with this line of thinking.  I’m proud to say that I do.

  • I received a call from Clint, after he introduced himself he told me about a job he thought I would be perfect for. A franchise of the company I had previously worked for. What he was about to find out was I interviewed with them and tanked it. Yes, I tanked an interview with a company I spent 9 years working for. You have to understand I've only had 2 jobs in 20 years so and I was nervous and wasn’t sure what to expect, I also thought my work experience with the company would be doing some of the talking for me. Clint said he would be in touch if anything came up. I thought that was the end of it. A few days later he called and helped me rewrite my resume to get the best of what I did that I didn’t think was that important onto paper. He called with another opportunity and set up the interview. Clint didn’t just set up an interview, he called the day before and spent an hour of his time prepping me for it. We went over the list of questions he sent that he thought would be asked and questions I should ask. I was more relaxed and the interview went well. I got a call 3 days later after they finished up the rest of the interviews and was offered the job. I called Clint and told him the good news, and that he wouldn’t have to deal with me anymore. Instead I was told he would be there throughout my training and the transition into the position. It’s awesome to know that someone is there to talk to if needed.  I truly believe I got the job because of Clint. I know I did on my merits but Clint was a huge help. Who would have thought one and done. I would recommend Clint Carpenter and Patrice and Associates to anyone.   Bethanne Volz
