With wearable technology becoming more accessible, we see more people tracking their daily activities through statistics and reports - How was my sleep quality, how many calories have I burned, what is my average heart rate, how much have I worked out? And of course the most popular one: have I reached my average daily steps?
If there is one line of work who's employees get more steps done in a day, it is not the average office working suit, but the F&B industry service crew. By the time breakfast finished and they have brought you your congee, croissant, coffee or perhaps you went heavy on a big breakfast, they have probably already broken your daily average steps. By the end of their shift, most waiters might sit around 10K steps per day. No wonder they always look in shape.
For most of us who spend our time behind our desks, tapping away at emails, the only time we manage to get our steps in is a quick trip to the bathroom, the coffee room or down the corner for lunch. For those of you who have invested in a standing desk - good job, but it doesn't count towards your steps! Our fellow F&B service crew members are often on their feet all day, walking from your table to the point-of-sale, and from kitchen back to your table. And of course, let's not forget all the other various daily tasks that are required to keep your favourite lunch place humming.
Weary and tired feet are the end result of a busy day's shift in this sector. Some of your staff might need less steps and not more. Have you ever asked your staff to wear one of those devices to see how many steps they take per shift? You might be surprise or even shocked.
Lessen the load on your F&B team member's feet!
