    How do you show your co-workers the importance of communication in the workplace?

      How to Answer

      Clear communication is vital, at all times, in the foodservice industry. Breakdown of communication in a foodservice setting can have dire effects on the profitability of an organization and its reputation. This effect is why it is essential to understand that 'telling,' and 'showing' are two very different things when it comes to proper communication. The interviewer would like to know that you lead by example when it comes to communication in the workplace. Give examples of how you put dialogue into action in the workplace.

      Rachelle's Answer

      "I show my co-workers the importance of communication in the workplace simply from leading by example. I set the tone and expectations for how we should communicate by utilizing all forms of written, verbal and interpersonal communications to a tee."

      Rachelle's Answer

      "In foodservice, we have to communicate every small detail of our projects and the clients' expectations. I encourage this with my team by asking everyone to use Trello, a project management app that tracks our progress and needs, every step of the way. It's like web-based sticky notes!"
