Proper Training and Proper Communication
Keith and Christine have experienced miscommunication from managers and employees and still find it weird when managers message their staff. 15 years ago, things were entirely different; phones weren’t allowed and they didn’t even know each other’s phone numbers. Now, Christine sees employees sharing screenshots of their bosses’ misconstrued and inappropriate texts all over Tiktok, but on a more positive note, texting for restaurants has led to increased sales, streamlined seating, pick-up and delivery, while boosting employee productivity and engagement.
Lines You Shouldn’t Cross
Christine cringes at the thought that employees have their managers phone numbers. Keith reads out a timeless, rather charming message from an unhappy employee. They also advise to not make your social media public, especially if you’re a controversial person. Make it private, don’t announce where you work and what you do for a living, keep it within your safe space, and don’t let it trickle down to your work force.
