23 YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES Let s begin by looking at your role in ensuring that your team meets our standards. Ensure your team meets our standards Train Reps to Ensure Quality Resets Be Available for Questions
24 MEETING CONVERGENCE STANDARDS Before we talk about standards, let s address something critical to your success your attitude. It is important that you display a positive, upbeat view of our company, and a can-do approach to your work. You must demonstrate our commitment to quality and demonstrate how to interact with our customers with professionalism and with the respect they deserve. As a team lead, your attitude will be contagious. Remember: Treating even the most challenging/ demanding customers with respect is critical because without them, we would have no work and no job.
25 MEETING CONVERGENCE STANDARDS Remember: To your reps, you are Convergence. Your team members will only aspire to meet the standards that you role model and hold them accountable to reach.
26 MEETING CONVERGENCE STANDARDS Some of the basic standards that you will ensure that your team members meet are as follows: Are they on time? Are they dressed appropriately? Do they have the skills required? Do they do quality work? Do they have the tools they need? Are they organized and prepared? Do they represent Convergence well? Do they behave like a professional with store personnel and peers?
27 YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES Now that we have reviewed your role in ensuring your team meets our standards, let review your role in training reps to deliver on-time, quality sets. Ensure your team meets our standards Training Reps to Ensure Quality Resets Be Available for Questions
28 TRAINING MERCHANDISERS Your role may include training new team members. This may mean helping new merchandisers understand their paperwork and how to navigate the portal. Remember: New Hire training is important because a strong foundation is the key to retention.
29 TRAINING MERCHANDISERS The most important part of your work is training your merchandisers to complete quality resets. In order for you to complete the on-the-set training, it is important that your team members have completed the necessary certifications prior for their work. Note: Your AM is the person that has access to records which indicate who has completed each certification, and he/she will be directing the merchandiser to take needed certifications before scheduling them for the work.
30 MEET BETTY Hi, My name is Betty and I am a Convergence team lead. My responsibilities vary based on the type of reset I am doing: consolidated, mini-consolidated, time & motion, or solo. That said, I am going to walk you through an overview of my responsibilities during a consolidated reset. Keep in mind that these steps many vary slightly based on the account specifics.
31 BEFORE ENSURING QUALITY RESETS Before the reset, my role is to: 1. Call the store to verify when my team will be in to complete the reset and confirm that necessary materials have arrived. A couple of days before the set, call all team members to remind them of date/time and confirm their attendance.
32 BEFORE ENSURING QUALITY RESETS On the day of the reset, I arrive early to do the following: 1. Sign into vendor log. 2. Introduce myself to the Manager. I let him/her know that Convergence is ready to complete our reset and I confirm that fixtures have arrived.
33 BEFORE ENSURING QUALITY RESETS 3. Next, I locate fixtures, labels, products and cleaning supplies at the store. 4. I ensure that I have the team leader kit which includes plan-o-grams, rail reports, labels and fixture order forms.
34 BEFORE ENSURING QUALITY RESETS 5. I check the planogram to ensure it matches the set size at the store. 6. I check to make sure the fixture kit matches the set size at the store.
35 BEFORE ENSURING QUALITY RESETS 7. I place the fixture update kit, planogram and labels for each brand in front of the section on the wall. 8. I set up totes, bags, and boxes (per store direction) to separate deletes vs overstock.
36 BEFORE ENSURING QUALITY RESETS Once the rest of the team arrives, I do the following: 1. I assign team members their specific work tasks. 2. I review the time allotted for the work with my team. It is my role to ensure that we meet or beat the budgeted time. IMPORTANT NOTE: Always be sure to open the OPEN ME FIRST BOX before your team begins their tasks.
37 DURING ENSURING QUALITY RESETS As the team begins resetting the section, I do the following: 1. I ensure that all deleted items and fixtures are pulled. 2. I verify that all sections are being set to plan-o-gram. (It is important for Team Leads to check each section throughout the day). 3. I verify that my merchandisers are using the rail report to record broken and missing fixtures, so that I can order all of the parts at the end of the reset.
38 DURING ENSURING QUALITY RESETS As my team wraps up the reset, my role is to: 1. Ensure that all new product is packed out and labeled. 2. Verify that everything is cleaned up. 3. Order all replacement parts while still in the store.
39 AFTER ENSURING QUALITY RESETS When the reset work is done, my role is to: 1. Carefully examine each section that was reset and check each team member s work. 2. Sign off on paperwork if applicable.
40 AFTER ENSURING QUALITY RESETS 3. Lastly, I walk the floor with the manager to verify that all resets are completed, and to admire our quality work. I also review parts ordered / follow-up issues. IMPORTANT NOTE: This last step is where we meet our goal of creating satisfied customers, better known as raving fans!
41 YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES Lastly, let s review the expectation that you be able to answer questions from your team members. Ensure your team meets our standards Train Reps to Ensure Quality Resets Be Available for Questions
