Quality customer service is an integral part of any business. If your employees can’t make your customers happy, chances are the customers won’t come back. To make sure they do, it requires employees to move beyond simple compliance of workplace rules and become truly committed to the jobs that they do at your restaurant.

The first step in cultivating committed employees is to becoming a committed leader. True positive reinforcement needs to be individualized and delivered immediately after an employee does something right. That way, the employee will be more likely to repeat those behaviors in the future. If an employee demonstrates stellar customer service work, or goes above and beyond to make a guest or client happy, they should be recognized for that. And this goes for everyone on staff. Consider them your internal customers. Yes, they are doing their job and that’s what they’re paid to do, but studies show that a paycheck is not as big a motivator as feeling like you are making a difference at work. Bosses who think they don’t need to tell their employees they are doing a good job are not fully engaging them. When it comes to engagement, every company has just three kinds of workers: Non-Compliant, Compliant, and Committed. Here’s what each looks like:

Non-Compliant: “I will not follow your rules because I am convinced the only way to get high production is to take risks and shortcuts.” Compliant: “I will follow your rules as long as someone (a manager, a supervisor, or a peer observer) is standing there watching me. But when that person leaves, I’ll take more risks and shortcuts.” Committed: “I will follow the rules, when nobody is watching. This is who I am…..” That ultimate level of employee engagement is commitment. What I’ve learned from helping so many companies is that without positive reinforcement, your employees will be less committed. With less committed employees, you are getting less performance from your team than you could be and your restaurant culture will suffer. But if you use positive reinforcement to cultivate engaged workers, all aspects of their work, including their treatment of restaurant customers, will improve.
