People Report: Best Practices winners share HR tips

People Report: Best Practices winners share HR tips

People Report and Black Box Intelligence honored four restaurant companies Thursday for creating successful and exemplary workplaces.

Logan’s Roadhouse, The Cheesecake Factory, McDonald’s and Eat’n Park were all honored at the 16th annual Best Practices Conference, hosted by People Report and Black Box Intelligence.

This year’s conference was held in Dallas.

Nation’s Restaurant News asked each of the four Best Practices award winners from the four restaurant segments what made their human resources programs especially effective in the past year:

Christy Cox, senior director of human resources, Logan’s Roadhouse

“What drives our great results are what we refer to as the ‘Three Cs’ — culture, compensation and consistency.” She added that consistency extended to the tenure of the leadership team, the regional managers, and communications throughout the organization.

Karen Bolden, senior vice president and chief people officer, Eat’n Park Hospitality Group Inc.

“We have a certified shift-manager program, which we developed to certify our hourly supervisors. They are critical to management success because they cover a lot of the shifts and provide a lot of the support. We have strengthened that program, which has really helped our management. We’ve reduced [management] turnover. When you can reduce management stress with a fully staffed team, it helps. They train in a classroom and then they have a program they go through at the restaurant. Then they take an exam and get certified. We have a little celebration for them as well.”


6 Types of Reports

There are a selection of different reports you might need to create. Each of these will follow a similar reporting writing format to what we've covering in this post.

1. Annual Reports

The first type of report we'll cover is an annual report. This will typically round up a business's year of progress and performance to let supervisors and team members know how the company did.

It can include anything from website analytics to sales profits, depending on who the report is meant for.

2. Weekly Reports

One report that is helpful to provide your team is a weekly report based on your progress in various projects and goals. This can be a simple one-pager, or a more in-depth report with specific updates.

3. Project Reports

Keep clients and team members up-to-date on the status of various projects you're working on by providing them with a project report. This can include a timeline of your report progress and the deadline for each segment to keep everyone on the same page.

4. Sales/Marketing Reports

It's essential to keep your team updated on how your sales and/or marketing strategies are going. Put together graphs showing profit margins, increases in engagement and more.

These types of reports are also a great way to determine whether your strategies are working or if they need some tweaking in the future.

5. Research Report

Sometimes if you need to do some in-depth research, the best way to present that information is with a research report. Whether it's scientific findings, data and statistics from a study, etc., a research report is a great way to share your results.

6. Academic Report

An academic report is one created for a class, often in graduate or undergraduate university. This follows a formal writing style and dives into a topic related to the student's academic studies.
