What Is the Good Jobs Strategy?
The Good Jobs Strategy Is a System
The Good Jobs Strategy creates superior value for employees, customers, and investors by combining investment in employees with operational choices that increase employee productivity, contribution, and motivation.
The Good Jobs Strategy is a high-performance system in which companies have high expectations of their employees and employees have high expectations of their company.
"A good jobs strategy means constantly trying to get better… paying more and having a higher expectation for what people are capable of"
Craig Boyan, President of H-E-B
Elements of the Good Jobs Strategy
The four operational choices—Focus & Simplify, Standardize & Empower, Cross-train, and Operate with Slack—drive performance and continuous improvement. They also enable a company to meet employee needs and to leverage its investment in people. At the same time, these operational choices work best with a capable and motivated workforce and hence they require investment in people.
