The Prepared Advantage
At Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA, manager/executive chef Alan DelRosso utilizes a variety of prepared products for patient meals, the cafeteria and catering. And he's not alone: Operators continue to turn to food manufacturers for such products as vacuum-packed, ready-to-cook marinated salmon filets or pre-cooked meat for burritos and tacos.
Defining Job Expectations
All the training, recognition programs and orientation procedures in the world won't mean a thing if employees don't know what's expected of them. Indeed, consistent standards and a clearly stated mission are the starting point for any career development effort.
