  • Title: Management Today | Key link in the chain
    Descriptive info: 12th Sep 2014 12:38.. McDonald’s Australia has for many years been one of the jewels in the crown of the global conglomerate.. Since its establishment in 1971 it has grown to more than 900 restaurants with more than 90,000 employees and a turnover estimated at more than $1.. 6 billion annually.. However, the opportunities for organic growth of the 1970s and 1980s have largely disappeared.. Increasingly, the company is relying on new ideas to drive its sales.. It has been a difficult few years for McDonald’s domestically as the global chain is suffering, with Australia and the rest of the Asia/Pacific region singled out by global CEO Don Thompson for criticism.. The group’s reputation in China was also hit hard earlier this year after it was found that expired meat was being repackaged in a Shanghai plant.. The new chief executive of McDonald’s Australia, Andrew Gregory, tells.. Mt.. that the domestic market is still growing, just not as fast as it has in recent years.. Gregory says McDonald’s performs best when it bundles innovations.. “What we need to do is offer several new options at the same time to change the customer experience,” he says.. “We know just offering a single product is not sufficient.. We need to change the environment in the restaurants, whether that be by a re-image or use of digital (technology), introduce new products and provide exceptional marketing.. ”.. Gregory insists the company has to be innovative if it is to remain dynamic.. Innovations are likely to be both home grown and imported, he says, as McDonald’s has an excellent system for sharing and benchmarking developments.. However, it is important to remain conscious of local tastes and preferences, he says: for example, Australia is the only market in the world where beetroot is offered with burgers.. ; in the Philippines the restaurants sell spaghetti; and in Japan there is a shrimp and macaroni patty.. One local innovation is that Australia recently became the only market in the world to offer barista-made coffee in its drive-through: “It is a really great challenge for us because it means we have to change our focus in our restaurant so we have become faster at the drive-through and improved the operations in the restaurant, because we are at our best when supplying high volumes.. Gregory says offering barista-made coffee in drive-through cuts across several of the key deliverables of convenience, product and service.. In a few stores, McDonald’s is also testing home delivery, which is popular in parts of Asia.. The surprise is that it was only two years ago that McDonald’s globally was celebrating a record performance at a time when its main competitors, such as Subway, Burger King, Starbucks and Wendy’s, were losing market share and struggling.. In the US, the introduction of healthier options, more espresso coffee, extensive store refurbishments, and a move away from the super-size approach that caused a storm of criticism from anti-obesity campaigners a decade ago has seen McDonalds sales and share price surge.. However, this year the chain has struggled to sustain profit in the highly competitive market, and offshore operations, including Australia, have been among the worst performers (according to most recent financial reports).. In Australia, from the mid 1990s until just a few years ago, McDonald’s growth was largely driven by the growth of the McCafe concept (pioneered in Australia), which offers espresso-style coffee rather than the drip filter style that has always been available.. It also offers a range of baked products and snacks at premium prices.. Along with the later introduction of a range of healthier food options such as salads and wraps to its regular menu, it  ...   actively encourage staff to make study at school or university their priority,” Gregory says.. “We offer really competitive wages for all the people employed in our restaurants, but over and above that is the opportunity of the training, development and life skills they learn.. We know most of our young people will leave McDonald’s and we are happy for that to happen, because we know they will succeed at their next job.. Anecdotally, we know the advantage of having McDonald’s on the resume is still incredibly strong.. Gregory says employment with McDonald’s is well regarded because it shows an ability to function in a fast-paced environment, deal with customers, be responsible and work in a team.. Gregory, 41, is very much a product of the McDonald’s commitment to training and promoting its own personnel.. He began with the company aged 19 as a casual crew member in East Doncaster while studying economics at Monash University in Melbourne.. Upon graduation he became an accountant with the company before being promoted to regional accountant for Victoria.. He received his initial job as an accountant as a result of a database maintained by McDonald’s of its employees other skills and qualifications.. Gregory then did his MBA at the University of Ballarat, which at the time had a training partnership with McDonald’s.. He was able to complete the course while attending a McDonald’s training centre in Collingwood.. McDonald’s still offers a program paying a percentage of fees for head office staff undertaking relevant further studies.. In the US, McDonald’s executives study at the Hamburger University based in Chicago, while in Sydney its Australian equivalent is the Charlie Bell School of Management Training (named after the first non-American and youngest-ever global chief executive, who was diagnosed with colon cancer within weeks of being appointed).. In 2002, Gregory was given the opportunity to change the focus of his career and led the real estate and construction function for the southern region that included Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia.. At that time he was responsible for expenditure for about $40 million a year.. “We try and move people laterally within the organization, because not only does it help their development, but they bring a range of other skills that balance out their lack of specialist skills.. In my case I was able to bring a strong finance background to the real estate and construction teams.. In 2006 Gregory became an officer of the company with his appointment as regional manager for Queensland before being sent to Japan in 2010 as restaurant development officer and was then promoted to supply chain officer and restaurant development manager.. He played a key role in the post-tsunami recovery in Japan.. Gregory returned to Australia last year as McDonald’s chief financial officer before being appointed as MD and CEO in April.. It is often a feature of companies with strong cultures that they tend to promote from within their ranks.. Gregory says about half of his senior management teams came from the within the ranks of the business.. Even among the others, several had at some time in their youth worked for the company.. “Part of our culture is that we want to provide great opportunities for our people and ensure that the culture of the restaurant where our customers and business is located is very strong through the organisation..

  • Title: Management Today | Ask Baden: Lighting up
    Descriptive info: 11th Sep 2014 09:18.. Two colleagues smoke marijuana at work during breaks.. We work in a white-collar environment where there is little chance of injury caused by machinery.. Do I have any business in talking to them about this?.. A.. The Australian Drug Foundation released a survey in July this year in which, testing for illegal drugs, synthetics and non-prescribed pharmaceutical medications, they found 10 per cent of Victorian employees had either taken a day off and/or gone to work feeling the effects of their drug use.. A Foundation spokesperson said even weekend use “can have a major impact on workplace productivity, performance, absenteeism and office health and safety”.. Marijuana/cannabis is the most commonly used illicit drug – one in five 18 to 29-year-olds is a user – and the testing situation is a mess.. There are two major methods of testing: urinalysis and taking swabs from the mouth.. A Fair Work Commission ruling in January this year  ...   traces of cannabis can be tracked six weeks after usage, warning dope can cause short-term memory problems, impaired thinking, decreased reaction time and changes in sensory perception.. NORML, the US-based dope legalisation organisation, counters by claiming: “In general, population studies have failed to.. document demonstrable deficits in neurocognitive performance – including simple reaction time, verbal/ language skills, executive function, motor skills, learning and recognition – in long-term cannabis smokers compared to non-users, nor have they identified many of the significant negative health consequences typically associated with tobacco smoking – such as increased incidences of lung, upper aero-digestive tract and oral cancers – in cannabis-only populations.. Confusing, eh? If your HR department doesn’t have a drug and alcohol counselling or testing program, perhaps you might help your friends by printing out the NCPIC web page and the section that says: “If a disability is incurred as a result of cannabis use, this may not be covered by Workers’ Compensation rules..
