Open Door Policy: Are you shutting out your employees?

Open Door Policy

That corner office with a view… That corner office with a view and a solid-oak door that is always closed… That corner office with a view, a solid-oak door that is always closed and what appears to be 7,500 square feet of windows… It’s funny that many CEOs (and employees for that matter) who claim that they want to increase communication in their office are from that corner office. They are closed off from the world and – more importantly – their employees.

The Culture of Customization & Its Revenue Driving Power featured

Your customer profile is changing… are you?

The customer is always right and always will be… at least when it comes to where they spend their hard-earned cash. As a business owner, whether it’s in foodservice or any other industry, it’s your responsibility to respond and mimic the changing tides of consumer wants, needs and tastes.

They are driving a shift in food sales, rapidly boosting the revenue of those stores that are in tune with this change and forcing the old-fashioned “We do and always have done things this way” out of business or scrambling to stay afloat.

The customer is always right and here’s why it affects your bottom-line.

This is a favorite tool of many employee owned businesses (as it should be) and is a good way to get everyone on the same page working to improve the bottom-line.
