Keep your whole restaurant in-sync with the right communication tools

Communication is key in your restaurant, especially as the industry faces a 73% turnover rate with poor communication being the number one reason staff quit. Implementing 7shifts’ staff communication tools can help keep your team informed, build a strong work culture, and retain your staff long-term.

Keep manager-employee communication channels open with 7shifts’ direct and group messaging functionality built into the app. Employees can message their coworkers about upcoming shifts or connect after-hours to build camaraderie. Managers can group message departments or teams to let them know about corporate events, changes to the schedule, or more. Additionally, managers and employees can chat one-on-one for more private interaction.

When your corporate team needs to send updates or announcements relevant to the whole team, owners, operators, and managers can use 7shifts’ Announcements functionality to share news one-way to staff. Managers can then follow up directly through group or direct messages to open up a conversation channel around the news.

Managers can stay in-sync with the Manager Log Book, which provides a private channel for your management team to discuss daily restaurant operations. The whole management team will be in-sync across shifts, activities, and more with the completely customizable manager log book to track activity, maintenance, staffing concerns, and more.

By removing the need for staff to provide their personal numbers and social media profiles, everyone’s privacy can be protected, and communication can be kept to the appropriate work-specific channels in 7shifts—the wireless communication system built for restaurants.
