Go back to what made HyVee great. Less corporate management, allow dept mgrs to run their areas, get a director with 1/2 a brain

Management should treat employees like they are people. Add more efficient back room processes. Add mandatory training for all employees including power equipment, hazardous materials etc. Allow employees the ability to move to a better position without asking for permission. Stop the gossip between store directors preventing employees from having a fair interview or getting an interview. Discipline management for acts of discrimination and intimidation. Make reviews and raises mandatory and not at the option of store management. Hire qualified people to manage a store. Eliminate the inner circle of people created by store directors, in which, the employees who do not belong and will never advance. Restructure store management and reporting lines. Redefine and clarify job descriptions and requirements.

Some managers need to go. A lot of upper management treat their employees like dirt. If an employee works hard all the time, you need to treat them with respect.

More managers and store directors that are hands on and treat all employees with respect instead of reminding them that they can be replaced and need to be busy at all times. Knowing your job, doing it well and never being acknowledged for that is defeating.

More in-person training. Less online training.
