Advice to Management
Quit the the blatant favouritism of some outfitters by not allowing extended breaks, ideal scheduling for certain individuals, bending rules, lunches/coffees with outfitters, etc., Base compensation and advancement on ability, knowledge and performance as well as communication skills, Properly acknowledge and follow-through with complaints to HR, Head office needs to focus on hiring COMPETENT managers who aren't seeking to knock each other out, Properly communicate with the other managers as well as the outfitters so e-mails, deadlines and expectations aren't missed, Quit the "make work" projects such as re-merchandising after the task has already been successfully completed when outfitters could be training and bettering their product knowledge, Learn to follow labour standards set forth by the law. Uphold expected culture and values - lead by example.
