Driving discretionary effort | Nudge

The post-covid rebuild stage has led to a slew of new challenges: Supply chain delays and shortages, rising food and menu prices, changing guest expectations – all of which are seriously exacerbated by labor market staffing challenges.

But the solution lies in your staff. If you can retain and inspire, they’re going to help you control costs and improve operational efficiency. They’re going to help you keep labor costs down by avoiding voluntary turnover and morale concerns. They’re going to help you achieve more predictable successes as franchising and acquisitions hit an all-time high.

But first you need to inspire, align, and enable them to do so.

This on-demand webinar will share the secret to driving the discretionary effort foodservice organizations need to rebuild – and grow. Nudge COO Jordan Ekers will be joined by Axonify Chief Learning Architect, JD Dillon, to explore how effective frontline training, communication, community-building, and much more can drive the business outcomes every organization desperately needs.

Now more than ever, retailers are looking to stay profitable and resilient by elevating the all-important customer experience. But in these uncertain times, so much change in the physical retail space has made it difficult to focus on meaningful – and consistent – customer interactions, not to mention bridging the gap between physical and digital experiences.

The secret to nailing the Great Return? Investing in your frontline communications and feedback loop. Your associates have a critical role to play in enhancing the customer experience – and helping your organization stay agile and responsive by tapping into your consumers’ expectations, attitudes, and behaviors.
