Doing Their Best, Every Single Day

Advertisement

Store managers at the St. Ann branch of Famous-Barr department stores, based in St. Louis, go to each employee at the end of the day to see what went well for them that day, rather than wait for a weekly or monthly report. "Those positive items are worked into the next morning's store rally," says merchandise sales manager Dan Eppler, of the St. Ann branch. "It has been a very effective way to reinforce good news on a timely basis and charge employees up to do their best, every single day."
