Anyone who runs a business knows that when staff enjoy their work, it doesn’t just have a positive effect on their own wellbeing, it’s good for everyone.

Job satisfaction in a team is nearly always reflected in better performance levels, fewer absentee days and also happier customers so there’s a valuable ripple effect to be had for businesses who achieve it.

One of the best ways to look after the mental health of staff working in the hospitality industry – or most sectors in fact – is to reduce their stress levels.

Very few people prefer to work under pressure, but what can be done to ease it, especially at the busiest times of the year?

Post-pandemic recruitment and retention problems have left those who work in hospitality feeling under increased strain as one in six jobs goes unfilled.

Thousands of businesses are now critically short of staff, while many of those who have enough employees face a fight to keep hold of them as they become increasingly disenchanted with working conditions and expectations.

Qbunk can make sure those shortages don’t affect the staff you do have.

Our Qbunk table ordering app helps restaurants, bars and pubs to continue offering the very highest level of service even if they have a smaller team, without compromising the customer experience. If anything, customers benefit because their order arrives more quickly and there’s less chance of mistakes being made.

The demands on staff are significantly reduced because instead of having to take and deliver orders for every table, their workload is cut thanks to seamless app ordering which goes straight to the bar or kitchen. Additionally, customers are happier as they know that their order has been placed, and can even track its progress via the app.

That leads to increased operating efficiency and results in 31% more orders completed by a team which doesn’t feel constantly rushed off its feet.

Recent research from The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) found that one in five hospitality workers suffer from work-related severe mental health issues. 84% of people working in hospitality said they felt increased stress as a direct result of their job.

Venues which genuinely champion mental health and staff wellbeing can find it pays dividends not only in terms of attracting and retaining staff but getting the best out of them – and when staff feel cared for, they win and the businesses supporting them win.

If you are interested in building a positive environment for your staff, and customers, contact Qbunk today to find out more.
