Saladino’s Current Communication:

Saladino’s Current Communication Memo’s are sent from upper management to lower management. Lower management is then expected to relay newly implemented policies or programs to Saladino associates.


Memo’s on newly implemented programs are often not being relayed to associates by management. If and when messages are given to associates, they are often not read or fully comprehended. This miscommunication leads to Saladino associates being unaware of critical topics or issues within the company. Problem

Solution: Dock Talks:

A communication program adopted from Hearth and Home Technologies for standardizing meetings and testing employees to verify information retention. Its purpose is to hold management and associates accountable for both delivering messages and understanding them. Solution: Dock Talks

“Dock Talks” Structure:

“Dock Talks” Structure A central hub would be created where upper management can post memo’s as well as company related issues. These memo’s or issues are then taken by lower level management to be relayed to other Saladino associates. Management would then create a “Dock Talks” packet appropriate for each department.

Step 1:

Step 1 Saladino’s associates print and sign their name on the first page of the “Dock Talks” packet. This Page contains the meeting location, presenter, and date. As well as lists the topics for the current meeting.

Step 2:

Step 2 The 2 nd page of “Dock Talks” contains messages or issues to be addressed in the meeting. I.E. Safety issues, Current Promotions, Reminders. These issues are thoroughly discussed between Saladino’s associates and lower level management.

Step 3:

Step 3 Each Saladino’s associate in attendance is then expected to take a short quiz. This quiz briefly addresses the issues covered in the meeting. Quiz’s are then turned in by Saladino’s associates are then reviewed by management to make sure new programs or issues are fully understood.

Funding and Resources:

Funding and Resources Safety and Health Program Will cost time and money. Largest cost will come from annual physician physicals for associates. Reduced safety costs and decreased associate turnover will offset the cost. Management will have slightly increased workload Doc Talks Virtually cost free Will take time and human resources to retool communication system, however equipment is already in place
