  28. 28. Barry and Communication Barriers - Effective Communication as a MotivatorOne common complaint employee‟s voice about supervisors is inconsistent messages – meaningone supervisor tells them one thing and another tells them something different. Imagine you arethe supervisor/manager for each of the employees described below. As you read their case, giveconsideration to how you might help communicate with the employee to remedy the conflict. Barry is a 27-year old who is a foodservice manager at a casual dining restaurant. Barryis responsible for supervising and managing all employees in the back of the house. Employeesworking in the back of the house range in age from 16 years old to 55 years old. In addition, theemployees come from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. For many, English is not theirprimary language. Barry is ServSafe® certified and tries his best to keep up with food safety issues in thekitchen but he admits it‟s not easy. Employees receive “on the job training” about food safetybasics (for example, appropriate hygiene and hand washing, time/temperature, and cleaning andsanitizing). But with high turnover of employees, training is often rushed and some newemployees are put right into the job without training if it is a busy day. Eventually, mostemployees get some kind of food safety training. The owners of the restaurant are supportive ofBarry in his food safety efforts because they know if a food safety outbreak were ever linked totheir restaurant; it would likely put them out of business. Still, the owners note there areadditional costs for training and making sure food is handled safely.One day Barry comes to work and is rather upset even before he steps into the restaurant. Thingshaven‟t been going well at home and he was lucky to rummage through some of the dirtylaundry and find a relatively clean outfit to wear for work. He admits he needs a haircut and agood hand scrubbing, especially after working on his car last evening. When he walks into thekitchen he notices several trays of uncooked meat sitting out in the kitchen area. It appears thesehave been sitting at room temperature for quite some time. Barry is frustrated and doesn‟t knowwhat to do. He feels like he is beating his head against a brick wall when it comes to gettingemployees to practice food safety.Barry has taken many efforts to get employees to be safe in how they handle food. He has hugesigns posted all over the kitchen with these words: KEEP HOT FOOD HOT AND COLD FOODCOLD and WASH YOUR HANDS ALWAYS AND OFTEN. All employees are given athermometer when they start so that they can temp food. Hand sinks, soap, and paper towels areavailable for employees so that they are encouraged to wash their hands frequently.
