Objectives n

Increase employee retention.


Increase sales revenues and profits.

Strategies & Tactics Strategy: Use peer pressure and encouragement to engage team members and improve employee performance and satisfaction. Tactics: Implemented a team-based structure to align store employee actions with store objectives while encouraging peer-to-peer reinforcement. On a monthly basis, each store’s year-over-year sales percentage was compared to the store’s trend percentage. Exceeding the trend by 6% earned all retail clerks award points. If the stores achieved a variety of monthly goals, retail store managers earned points. To help reduce turnover, a 60-day qualifier was required for award redemption. Strategy: Share and maintain an open dialogue with employees regarding performance expectations. Tactics: Created a communications campaign which addressed store improvement areas and program rules. Communications were designed for unique aspects of a retail environment including: posters, interactive CD-ROM, banners and brochures.
