Top-notch service must be embedded into an organization’s culture. If the service attitude is not already part of your company’s culture, invest substantial resources for training and building commitment to uphold high standards across all levels of your business.
Tips for building a service culture:
- Hire for attitude as well as experience. Great servers are, by nature, friendly and helpful.
- Take your time with training. Define the amount of time servers will train and shadow experienced servers before they set out on their own.
- Set standards and stick to them. Managers should evaluate servers every day.
