Having to track perishables, keep inventory of what was sold and what was lost, and ordering daily to replenish these items would be quite a task for each store in itself. By training each store manager individually, Kathy could educate each manager and instill her own personal purchasing philosophies. She would have to sacrifice a little extra time each day to this specific task during the training period with the opening of each additional store. As new managers enter her workforce, she can train them prior to a store’s opening. Kathy can also set expectations and create incentives for her managers by tracking the percentage of perishables that are wasted.

My supervisions are taken on shift, my manager will watch how I work, how I integrate with the team of staff and with the clients in the care home and put forward any ideas on what I could do differently but also explain what I am doing well. It will also involve making sure that I fill in all the necessary paperwork such as care plans and accident forms and follow the appropriate policies. They are not formal and it feels easy during these times to ask for advise and to be supported when learning new things within the care home. The appraisals are more formal, myself and the manager will sit down and discuss everything about the job, anything from day to day tasks to staff grievances. The positive of this is that if there is anything I am unsure of I can speak in confidence and not feel embarrassed that I do not know how to do something in front of the care home clients and/or their families.
