  9. Jobs and Multiskilling in the Food System Take Action Advantages of Multiskilling • Work force is more flexible. • Employees become more aware of the workflow. • Employees are better prepared to anticipate problems or requirements of other areas. • Employees can assume other tasks when there is absenteeism. • Employees can be moved into other positions at peak times of the operation. • A new employee at a job may have new ideas to fine-tune that job.

  12. Jobs and Multiskilling in the Food System Reality Practice: Case Study A rural county on the eastern seaboard is experiencing a tremendous growth in population. The beach has attracted a great deal of tourism, increasing the hospitality industry. With that, the permanent resident population has truly exploded, and the school board has had to build two new elementary schools to accommodate the influx of students. Mary Smith, the manager at Lincoln Elementary with an enrollment of 750, has had a stable staff for over ten years. All her employees know their jobs well, and Ms. Smith was very proud that her staff had won numerous awards for zero absenteeism over the years.

  13. Jobs and Multiskilling in the Food System Reality Practice: Case Study This year, with the opening of two new schools, half of Ms. Smith’s staff has requested a transfer to the new schools. They have told Ms. Smith they really like working with her; but they want to see what it’s like working in a new school, and the new schools are a little closer to their homes. At the end of the school year, Ms. Smith will be left with a baker, cold/salad prep person, and the dishwasher. She will have to replace at least four of her current employees—two cashiers, one vegetable cook, and one meat (hot entrée) cook.

  14. Jobs and Multiskilling in the Food System Reality Practice: Case Study Worksheet Could there be another reason why so many of Ms. Smith’s workers chose to leave their current jobs to start with a new manager? With such a stable work force, how could Ms. Smith have averted this situation? Building Human Resource Management Skills National Food Service Management Institute 14

  15. Jobs and Multiskilling in the Food System Reality Practice: Case Study Worksheet Ms. Smith has to determine how she is going to utilize her remaining employees. List the skills each remaining employee has: How many of these skills can be applied to the other positions that will be vacant? List the skills and positions below: Building Human Resource Management Skills National Food Service Management Institute 15

  16. Jobs and Multiskilling in the Food System Checking Out: Skill Development Think about the advantages of having multiskilled employees in your operation. Using the skill list from the Reality Practice, group different jobs in the kitchen which may have similar skill requirements. Develop a plan to cross-train your current employees in a systematic fashion until you have achieved your goal of a multiskilled team.
