Chef Laura: A baker's dozen

Good read and look at one of the many talents and great eateries here in Denver. By Ted on 2014 08 14

Look beyond the resume for the best hire

Thanks for the comments John. The new approach so far seems to be working out. Our new hire is doing great and confirms in my mind the model works. By Glen Weinberg on 2014 08 13

Look beyond the resume for the best hire

Great article Glen, illustrating how it comes down to "can they do the work that needs to be done"? Nick at asktheheadhunter.com has been preaching this approach for many years to try to help both those doing the interviewing and those being interviewed. You should share your example with him and his readers as it hits home on how your approach worked best for everyone. Thanks again for sharing this! John By John Mauro on 2014 08 12

Chef Laura: Punctuality through pastries

Like any generation, individual results may vary. Should employees come on time? Yes. Should salespeople upsell without a refresher course? Yes. Should my daughters clean their room without asking? Yes. But sometimes a little creative incentive gets the job done quicker, better, and with a smile on everyone's face. By Chef Laura on 2014 08 11

Chef Laura: Punctuality through pastries

My favorite device we used to motivate customer service teams to up sell was the Orange Juice Bowl. Whatever team exceeded the sales goal the most had orange juice poured by the team leader who won the previous week. It was cheap and motivated sense of competition. By Lisa Lehndorff on 2014 08 09

Chef Laura: Punctuality through pastries

I'm betting this story is about a decade old, based on your references. I'm wondering if you still feel the same about Gen Y'ers? Seems to me that the issue is less to do with a generation of people, vs. young and inexperienced people. Thoughts?!?!? By Gen Y on 2014 08 09

Chef Laura: Punctuality through pastries

Funny how things work. I was on my way to a meeting this week and realized I was running late, because I was trying to get there on time, not early - which would not allow me to get my computer up and running and to have my notes ready. I was all sorts of annoyed with myself. Then I read this article (a few days after it came out), I think the universe is telling me something By Interesting on 2014 08 09

Chef Laura: Punctuality through pastries

i used to treat my staff to bagels on saturday mornings and doughnuts on sunday mornings... back in the good old days. i'm glad i can just be a punctual worker bee now. drives me crazy to think you have to "bribe" people to do their jobs. after all - isn't that what your pay is?
