So, if that’s true then it’s possible to hold everyone in the customer service role accountable for how well they do their jobs. The truth is, everybody loves to win and you can’t win if you don’t know the score. Putting numbers to work in the process adds objectivity and stirs each team member’s competitive urge.

Accountability allows for us to remember we are here to serve together as a team and that in order to do so we have to align ourselves with the corporate vision, values, and culture. Every team member has a very specific role in the process and if we plan on delivering an excellent and unforgettable experience for our guests, then each and every one will have to play their role to perfection.

Accountability will keep the team members on task and keep work flowing seamlessly. We hold our team members accountable because we want to consistently increase productivity, thereby improving guest service.
