Communication at McDonalds McDonalds commutates in different ways to people and other businesses, they commutate internally and externally. It is important for McDonalds commutate because each person who works within the business needs to know what’s new and what has change in the business.
E. g.if McDonalds has started to sell a new product, if Mark Richards didn’t tell the staff then the staff wouldn’t know what to do when the business asked for the new product and the business wouldn’t operative very well. They could improve their communications by having more computers in the business; they have only got one computer in the business. They could also improve the communication by letting the first assistant managers handle more of the phone calls and order the stock, they have worked their for over that 10 years and they know how to run the business. Maybe not as much as Mark, but they can take up some more responsibility.
