Introduction

My name is Wahida Begum, and as part of my coursework I have been told to evaluate and explain how the functional areas work effectively in Emni restaurant, and what the methods are, that were used to achieve this. We visited Emni restaurant and we looked at the functional areas of the business and how they are able to cooperate and communicate. There are many different ways that Emni restaurant use in order to result in effective communication and team work. In order for different functional areas in Emni's to work effectively they must use different methods which includes the following: Aims and objectives: Emni restaurant is highly effective at communicating the aims and objectives to its members. Aims and objectives are essential for a business because they give the business a sense of direction and something for them to work towards. They keep the line of communication clear, as well as helping to avoid confusion between the different departments. This will be communicated to them in different ways. One way that the aims and objectives are communicated to the employees is by meetings, which are held regularly to: * To discuss and make new targets * Make adjustments to existing targets * See how well the existing targets were achieved As a result of this Emni will be producing more sales, so that they can earn more profit. ...read more.

Team work is only achieved if the departments in Emni are cooperative. In Emni presentations are made for different areas and this includes presentations made by PowerPoint, DVDs, technology. Organization is vital for functional areas to work effectively because they must be aware of the changes and must agree to the decisions that are made within departments. In Emni there are timetables that are used to help manage the time of employees and allow them to be aware of the immediate changes. Emni can publish timetables on the computer which can be accessed easily and as a result will save employees time from changing their own timetables. This would make it easier for employees to update their timetables faster. Rules: Because of the size of the company and the number of employees, it is vital that strict codes of conduct are put in place for all staff. This is introduced initially at induction training and re-enforced later so that each employee is clear about their rights, responsibilities and obligations from the onset. Rules are set in the business so that it can give a sense of direction and prevent the employees from doing things that are not expected of them. ...read more.

Conclusion

Managers of different functional areas need to put measures in place to promote more in-depth evaluation of their work leading to better outcomes. The business needs to be aware of ever-increasing customer demands for new innovative menus to compete with the other restaurants. Conclusion: To conclude I think that Emni's work well together and have an effective communicating system and clearly set targets. As a result of this hard work, Emni restaurant are achieving what they want and are becoming more successful as time's passing by. Emni is a successful company with clear aims and objectives which are targeted and monitored regularly. The communication within the company is effective and this has helped sustain its strong economic position. The constant investment in modern technology has helped reinforce this position. Clear codes of conduct are put in place to ensure a safe and harmonious working environment. A variety of methodology was used to gather this information. This included going to the business and the manager Mr. Hannan talking to us about the business and how they work as a whole. We also got to look around the restaurant and take a look at how Emni looks internally and externally. We also got help from our teacher who gave us some extra information, so that we can write this.
