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.

    The thing that stands out to me the most is you can tell he truly cares. He helped me gain self confidence through phone calls and was constantly checking in on me during the interview process. Not only was I able to acquire a great job with the help of Jonathan, but I received incredible insight. He is a very smart guy and is able to effectively explain his thoughts in a simple manner.

  • Karen Horton is personable, knowledgeable, and was instrumental to my Career Goals.

    Communication and correspondence with her was easy and fast and her feedback always proved very useful during the recruitment process.  With other recruiters I have dealt with in the past, I've usually had the impression that I was merely part of a quota of applications. This was not so with Karen, I am convinced that she had my best interest in mind as well as those of the company she was "hunting" me for.    

    I cannot thank Karen enough for all her assistance in what I am sure will be a long lasting relationship with my new employer.

    Regards,
