Engaging Employer

Team Leader (Former Employee) Denver, CO

ProsCulture that values a stakeholder approach to business. This means that the organization values every party that it does business with including: employees, suppliers, customers, vendors, and shareholders. Each of these parties often feel that the organization acts in their best interests. This is exemplified in the organizations environmental focus and stewardship of natural resources. Team Leaders are encouraged to engage team members within and outside of the department they lead. Monthly rallies that involve rewarding and recognizing exemplary efforts boost morale and bring about a sense of community. This helps bond a stores employees and encourages a healthy competitive attitude.

ConsOn the retail side there is a limit to the salary increases due to the nature of retail. The organization can become politically charged due to the passion exemplified by the managment to social issues and the conflict with the financial aspect of a business. The financial benefit of gainsharing and the calculation of gainsharing rewards is a bit mystical. Not sure how these payouts are arrived at and what methods are used to engage employees in this aspect of the organization. This is one area which someone should bring transparency too. Employees deserve to know what they are working toward.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork on invovlement at the store level so that there isn't a chain of information being fed to them by middle managment. Look at Costco's managment structure and senior managment engagement.
