Staff moral

Its been a busy week so far in the Chefs In Scotland office and I imagine that all of our chefs are starting to feel the heat in the kitchen after two busy bank holiday weekends this month as well as the increased temperature making al fresco dining and generally eating out more popular every day of the week. Its still half term in some places so again those of you who are working in holiday resorts again will be feeling how busy it is getting. I remember many a time working in Thornhill with the music festival and the various bank holidays throughout the year, starting very early in the morning and not finishing till late at night. But on a day like today when the sun is shining I would love grabbing a quick break in the sun and soaking up the rays. The atmosphere in the kitchen on a bank holiday was always buzzing and I remember running about getting checks sent out enjoying the kitchen banter with the other chefs, including a couple of our relief chefs who’s names will not be mentioned.

I think when its so busy like that it is important to keep the fun aspect up as long as the task at hand is being completed because otherwise it can feel so draining and your adrenaline would drop. When we are working in an office of course it’s completely different, its less hot for one, but we still try and keep the work atmosphere and moral high so that everyone can perform at their best.

What I want to know is what do you do in the kitchen to keep moral high on a busy day, so everyone can get the job done to the best of their ability?
