If I could describe McDonald’s business strategy in one word, I would definitely say ‘smart’. And I mean that in the best-rounded way. I very strongly agree with McDonald’s CEO, Steve Easternmost, when he says, “If you get the people right, the rest will follow’. I believe that it is all a domino effect in the way an organization Norms; happy employees make for better production.
McDonald’s has proven itself as good employer because of its five “people principles” that focus on keeping the employee happy and comfortable first and foremost. I think that they are successful because of the way they hire their employees. Because McDonald’s strives for excellent service and quality, they work hard at finding the correct employees and retaining them, thus creating an experienced and capable testators. 2. McDonald’s has aligned its business, human resource, and staffing strategies by connecting all here of these fields to one main source: the employees.
By raising its hiring standards, McDonald’s has hired, trained, and retained employees that are enthusiastic about giving their all to the customer. 3. Some possible talent-related threats that could eat away at McDonald’s competitive advantage would be when their teenage employees are ready to move on to other companies where they can build a career. Higher turnover would definitely be a problem for all companies, not lust McDonald’s.
I don’t believe a tight labor market in which it is difficult to find talented people would be a problem for McDonald’s because you don’t have to be highly educated or have any educational qualifications to work at the company. To maintain its competitive advantage over the next five years, I recommend that McDonald’s simply continue doing what they are doing. They look for all the right qualities and potential in their employees, so I believe they will always be successful on the ‘people part’.
