Making the Grade: Reward Student Employees


What gets rewarded gets done, especially when it comes to restaurant training programs. It’s a fact of restaurant life that a large number of employees are working their way through school. So why not use their academic goals to enhance your service and sales goals? The Making the Grade incentive is a good place to start. Here’s all you need to do:

  • If you don’t know already, find out which of your employees are going to school — high school, trade school, college, anything.
  • Meet with your student/employees and propose a bonus of $0.25 for every hour worked during the semester — provided they maintain a specific GPA.
  • Draw up an agreement for those who want to participate and have each person sign it.
  • At the end of the semester, present student-employees with their bonus checks and certificates of achievement — and do it with some fanfare at an all-staff meeting.
