You are the president of XYZ Manufacturing company

07Sep 2021 by

You are the president of XYZ Manufacturing company. You have recently learned about the following issue:

A month ago, the company’s general manager (GM) told one of the line managers to produce an extra 15,000 units of a product so that there would be inventory in stock for the next time the item is ordered. Last week, the GM scolded the line manager for having 15,000 units of the item in stock. The GM told the line manager that producing excess inventory costs the company money and should never be done. The GM then puts the line manager on a performance plan. This is not the first time you have heard about the GM telling an employee to do one thing only to criticize him or her for doing it later.This employee feels very frustrated by this, but does not want to make a formal complaint because she has seen other employees lose their jobs or get demoted for questioning the GM.

Scenario:

Danny Meyer Leads His Company Through the Challenges of Eliminating Tips

What happens when your CEO wants to remove the tip structure from your restaurant? Do you complain about the new prices as a customer? Do you worry about your paychecks as a server?

Danny Meyer, CEO of Union Square Hospitality (home to some of the most successful New York restaurants), discovered these answers when he began eliminating the tip structure in most of his restaurants. He had seen firsthand the largest negative impact of a tipping culture: employees stuck in frontline positions with no chance to advance to management positions without taking significant pay cuts.

Meyer began by first involving the affected employees in town hall talks. These town halls happened months before any publicity was released. Meyer then hosted town halls with customers to explain the importance of fair wages for all of his employees at the restaurant, not just the few who served the food. The transition period for each restaurant to eliminate tips was usually 3–6 months.

As a result of eliminating the tip structure in most of his restaurants, Meyer has been able to increase the pay structure for cooks at those locations, which enables him to fill more cook positions and address a common industry shortage. Meyer has also been able to hire employees with a purpose: to deliver exceptional hospitality. Meyer encourages his employees to take care of each other first and to then take care of the customer, which creates a virtuous cycle of hospitality.

Meyer constantly uses feedback from his employees, even after the tip structure was eliminated. He wants to ensure that each employee feels that his or her voice is heard and understood. Employees continue to have access to town hall meetings and internal feedback channels to offer honest feedback.
