The real meaning of PEOPLE DRIVEN!
What you could learn from Chipotle. Not how to make tacos, but how to motivate employees and find talent. Max Nisen dissects the methods the fast-food chain uses to pick out promising managers and promote them all the way up from the burrito-rolling station
Fundamental to this transformation is something Chipotle calls the restaurateur program, which allows hourly crew members to become managers earning well over $100,000 a year. Restaurateurs are chosen from the ranks of general managers for their skill at managing their restaurant and, especially, their staff. When selected, they get a one-time bonus and stock options. And after that they receive an extra $10,000 each time they train a crew member to become a general manager.
This program is way to create “gravity” at the managerial level—to make sure that great managers are given the chance to make individual stores great. They stay involved training excellent people instead of leaving to become less effective middle management at the corporate level
