Relocation for hiring two cooks will become costly for the restaurant so not good strategy. So it is better to attract talented candidate through advertisement and some benefit like health insurance, some facility for cook’s family and some other rewards. Overstaff or Understaff: Buffalo Wild Wings must seek to be fully staffed. Overstaff will cause employees of the restaurant to remain idle and the restaurant needs to take steps to reduce head count such as layoff or early retirement plan. Keeping idle employee in employment will be expensive for the restaurant as the restaurant needs to pay salary to those employees even if it does not gain anything from them.
Perhaps they believe that the employees are contributing to the revenue losses and are stealing merchandise. These are all self destructive in nature and could impact their ability to remain in business and keep good employees. Making the decision to close two stores without adequate justification drastically reduces it footprint in the market place. It appears that either the store supervisor or manager is not engaged with the employees and consumers; do not have sufficient training on company ethics policies to enforce them; or they do not have a fully robust ethics program in place to address to ongoing issues. PART B Company Q can take some immediate steps which I believe would turn a downward trend in to positive results.
By assigning managers under Dalman and Lei’s level, the self managed teams would be better equipped to handle daily activates. This would involve training the self managed teams to better plan and determine what type of training would help them manage their daily responsibilities. Once the self managed teams are trained and assigned the ultimate goal would be to reduce Dalman’s involvement in having to go visit the operating locations and addressing manager operation concerns, and Lei would be able to completely concentrate on the financial matters of the company without being disturbed. Dalman and Lei can train the self managed team on monitoring and implementing the company’s policy so that each employee can understand what they are supposed to do and also know the positives and negatives of the company. Another way a self managed team at Sandwich Blitz can help increase team productivity, such as having the team members cross trained to do various jobs.
There is no training program for them that state any reasons why the culture of the company relies on customer satisfaction. So in this case some employees may feel resentment for having to put so much effort into making their customer happy. For instance, some Nordstrom employees may feel that it is too difficult to meet the needs of some of their customers. Employees are expected to go out of their way, even to work long hours or beyond their hours to meet their customers’ needs, but they do not get compensated for any overtime. The environment for this employee could be very stressful and cause them to not want to put much effort into sales.
Bridget Hutchings - 228303 EST1 - Task 310.2.1-05 The attitude of Company Q towards social responsibility seems to be decreased by the pressure of profit loss. They closed 2 stores recently due to the fact that they were continually losing money. This not only creates a problem for the employee's that worked there, but also for the customers who frequented the stores. By improving their ethical makeup they could not only improve their profits, but it would also help the relationship with their employees and customers grow. There are a few things that Company Q could work on and change to create a better enviroment for the community.
However, Because of poor teamwork, the new location has been having poor customer feedback; is losing customers, and is unable to meet the sales target by a large margin. Steve is the manager of Maggie’s Sandwich; if Steve chooses to maintain the status quo, he will implement no change in his management and/or the operations of the shop.

This will allow management more time to focus on company values and management duties instead of performing a multitude of tasks that are non-management related. Kudler Fine Food’s growth is to remain as a customer oriented business that provides high quality gourmet foods. Implementing supply chain technology will automate the manual inventory and ordering performed by the owner within Kudler Fine Foods will alleviate responsibility on the owner and ensure products are ordered correctly and in a timely order. An opportunity exists to reduce the responsibility by either hiring help with purchasing products and inventory or by training others to use an automated inventory tracking system. Both would incur costs, but implementing an automated inventory tracking system will save time.
It is like he is experiencing some form of discomfort or despair. He does not seem to be interested in why his African American coworker has to say about why he is late or absent from work and Alan does not seem to organize and interpret the female subordinate feelings. Overall, I get the impression that Alan is not interested in the interview. 2. Describe how Alan’s opening comments in the video (his view of his job) affect his approach to the performance reviews.
As a manager of Kudler Fine Foods, followings are the combination of my personal values and experience to strengthen the Kudler Fine Foods value. Small Organization Kudler Fine Foods strategic plan (2003) points out the advantage of small company that enables the company to control and monitor all daily and weekly activities. Clearer cut of daily and weekly activities is to create a division of duties and responsibilities of each section. Empowering and delegating the authority to the section leader reduces a manager’s energy to give a feed back to each employee, but also enables to check and verify the performance of employee with defined measurements. Competition Although KFF strategic plan (2003) states “ there are no other gourmet stores in our geographic area” (p.
