The Ultimate Investment

At some point, most customers have the unpleasant experience of walking into a quick serve, ordering food, and getting a less-than-warm greeting from an employee who seems disconnected from his work and guests. These diners may think the attitude is entirely the employee’s fault, but it may stem from a lack of corporate involvement at the unit level.

In fact, a recent study by Atlanta-based internal communications agency Tribe Inc. revealed that a disconnect between corporate and front-line employees can lead to poor customer service and low morale in the unit.
