Figuring out what your food truck staff wants can feel like an intricate puzzle, especially when different employees require different things. Here are a few things your mobile food employees need to be successful:

  • Role clarity. Tell each of your employees what their roles are in your business, what you want them to achieve, and what the rules are for getting there.
  • Autonomy. People want something interesting or fun to work on and they want to be trusted to do it well.
  • Accountability. Holding people accountable is not just about being fair. It also sends a message about what is and what isn’t acceptable. This is critical for employees who are trying to figure out how to succeed.
  • Praise. Everyone wants to be recognized when they’ve done something right. You can motivate employees by highlighting their strengths and not harping on their weaknesses.
