You wouldn’t think to look at a pizza chain for best in class engagement practices, but Nick Sarillo of Nick’s Pizza & Pub has discovered the magic link between engaged employees and substantial gains in bottom line performance. As featured in Newsweek, The Chicago Tribune, and Inc. Magazine, this incredible story highlights the innovative training and methodologies Nick Sarillo created at almost no cost, to propel his two local pizzerias to over 6.5 million in sales last year (the industry average is $542,456 per unit).
How do you engage a workforce that is typically very diverse, non-educated, and very young? The industry turnover rates average 133%, however Sarillo’s turnover rate hovers somewhere between 20-24%. By instituting purpose and core values for his employees, by clearly defining individual goals and by leveraging new social media, this organization has built a high performing culture with astounding bottom-line results.
In this very special presentation you will explore some simple tools and best practices that can be used by any business intent on building a values-driven, high-performing organization. Examine why values and purpose are not just static mottos to memorize, but why they should be incorporated into daily work activities and language. In addition, walk away with critical tools you can implement today.
