Describe the systems you have in place for keeping track of assignments given to staff members.
1.
I like to have a paper or digital trail of what I have communicated to staff members. In the restaurant business staff members don't have computers so I would verbally followup with them on assignments and use a dry erase board to assign tasks. In my current role as an auditor I work with many taxpayers who need to submit tax documents, correspondence from employers and other stuff as needed. I always annotate their accounts with what has been requested and what has been received. I also create a folder for each taxpayer and keep track of the entire process within the folder including copies of emails, summaries of conversations, request and copies of documents received. I would use a similar approach as a project manager to keep track of assignments given to staff members.
