All members on the shop floor will be trained to do all aspects of the job, thus improving morale and efficiency within the business. A hierarchal structure will also mean there is a direct promotion line and will give all staff something to work towards. The manager will oversee the running of the shop but will be less involved with the on-shop tasks and can concentrate on the more strategic and long term aims of the business with the introduction of another assistant manager. Employees will also know exactly what it is there is to do as there will be a more direct communication line, resulting in a more improved communication within the business and messages not being “lost in translation.” The kitchen department will be completely separate from the rest of the business, will have its own till and stock levels, and a head of kitchen will oversee the running of the kitchen with 3 assistants reporting to them. The Head will report directly to the manager and will cut out unnecessary communication with other departments in the business.
