I am having trouble coming up with contests for the BOH. The FOH manager has contests for the servers frequently with a meal etc as reward for highest check average or other things. One cook asked me, after having to cook a meal for a server when he thought he was finished for the evening, why do we reward people for doing there job? I explained to him that he is trying to push servers to become better at there job and rewarding the ones that do, to try to get everyone to want to become better. Next he asked me why don't the cooks get anything like that? Saying it's unfair. I told him that he was right and would try to put some together. I have been thinking and of course I want to set it up to reward people for the right things an but all I have come up with is based off the station breakdown lists and going through each station randomly and grading what was actually done. No half points only one point for it being done and zero for what was not. I don't want it to create a disturbance or even worse actually anger the people that don't win and create resentment. Has anyone hear had any luck with this type of thing, if so what did you do and did it actually motivate people to improve?
