Best in Class
You have an established leadership communications strategy and field leaders play a role in ensuring that your company priorities are cascaded and understood. Your task-based communication includes proper context, which ties back to brand goals. But your store systems are still siloed, and you’re not leveraging readership and execution data to the fullest extent.
Best in Class
Your field and store leaders are bought into your company vision and priorities (nice work!), but there’s still room to improve when it comes to frontline employees.
All communication to the field is tailored by role. Employees in stores know where to go for information and also when to expect it. Frontline store associates also have access to communication from HQ via handheld devices.
Store employees are continually encouraged to make their voices heard and share positive and negative feedback via a dedicated platform, and your company makes eventual pivots and business decisions based on feedback collected from the field.
Store managers must still give each frontline, hourly associate a verbal download at the beginning of their shift (sometimes called a “chat-in” or a “one-minute-meeting”) to ensure all employees properly prioritize task load.
But wait, there’s more! Check out your unique Store Enablement Maturity Matrix below.
