Hilton New Orleans Riverside, LA
We have a weekly award amongst departments called Mr. SALTY! Mr. SALTY is awarded to the department each week with the most improved SALT score percentage. Mr. Salty is awarded to the department at a surprise, impromptu (less than 10 minutes) ceremony where the General Manager, Resident Manager, and key department heads bring the Mr. SALTY trophy, as well as individual bags of pretzels, for each Team Member. The winning department for that week gets to keep Mr. SALTY displayed in their department for the entire week. Team members love to see Mr. SALTY and take their picture with him!
The Mr. SALTY trophy & program has definitely impacted our SALT scores. Team members are more aware of their department’s scores, and are interested in how they can raise them so that they can get Mr. SALTY. It is a friendly competition between departments that really has very little cost involved.
