    Well, given the crappy conditions of yesterday, I called up my two delivery drivers to tell them that working was optional yesterday, one is part time, the other is long term full time. I told the full time guy, I could pick him up in my Toyota Rav4, and he could do deliveries in that if he wanted to...

    Both of them just turned up and got on with it in their own cars! and the delivery service was chocablok as you can imagine! So big thumbs up to them both! :respekt:

    The main FT guy will get a xmas bonus, the part timer got a few drinks on top of wages. They got a whole load of tips from the customers for getting the food to them, and was more than happy.

    Good on them for caring about work, and on you for caring about them.

    I'll be interested to see how many of our lot bother to come to work tomorrow...

    Makes a big difference to employee mentality when they know that their efforts don't go unnoticed or unrewarded.

    Obviously look after your staff Jo!

    Well done to them Jo, I ordered a takeaway last night, the place is literally 5 minutes away, but had to wait 1 and a half hours for the food to come, but I ordered it extra early as I knew it would be bad and thats even if they were doing deliveries.

    Weather has been really bad by us since yesterday and it does take a lot for them to get out and do the deliveries, especially with the amount of idiots on the road that dont have a clue!!
