Hilton Garden Inn West Edmonton, AB
We found that Healthy “competition” is the best way to gain positive results. After we had our “So You Want to be a SALT Star” game show at the hotel to educate all our team members on the true meaning of SALT, we decided that a healthy competition between departments focused on affecting the overall scores would be fun. We made a “SALT cupboard” and placed the names of the four departments easily tracked on the surverys. For every 9 & 10 a department received they received one SALT package into their SALT shaker – for every score between 1 – 8 they receive one PEPPER package in their pepper shaker. At end of the month the department that has the most SALT minus PEPPER was the winner! (TOTAL SALT – PEPPER = SCORE).
At the end of the month the department with the most SALT goes out with the GM & AGM for a night out on the town. Last month we took the Front Desk department to the local comedy club (the entry tickets were donated by the comedy club). This month the winner will go with us to the local CORN MAZE for some out door fun. The four departments involved are Housekeeping, Front Desk, Resturant and Kitchen. We have the SALT cupboard hanging up in the Staff room, for everybody to see. This allows for a lot discussion, fun and the ol’ competitiveness in everyone has kicked in.
