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.
Your communication is targeted by location so there is no risk of a store team looking at irrelevant directives. It’s likely mobile-enabled but frontline/PT employees still lack comprehensive access to handheld devices.
Store employees are continually encouraged to make their voices heard and share positive and negative feedback via a dedicated platform, but this feedback is likely used superficially (i.e. for general engagement, or so "stores feel heard").
Employees are allowed and actively encouraged by their manager and corporate headquarters leaders to make in-the-moment decisions that drive better business in their store location.
