Anyone having success on this front? If so Could you share your policy, how it’s communicated to the staff and enforced … I was relying on “common sense” but I have reached my limit and many if not most of my staff members are NOT “complying”
I have never said anything to them about their phones.
Its a battle I could never win. If there is a lull in service, go ahead and look at your phone, I do also. But if there is pizzas to be made or cut, and phones to be answered, my crew would never consider looking at their phone.
If I did have a policy, and they didn’t follow it I would just be mad all the time. And they woild just go to the bathroom much more often. Its not 2006 anymore
Fully agree. The cellphone battle is just going to upset you. If there is a major issue address it with the individual employee. No need for a blanket policy.
My only issue is how dirty they are. I railed against setting a phone on any kind off prep table. I would have managers just contiually remind them to wash their hands every time they touched their phones.
thank you all for your words of wisdom (experience)
