This snap shot shows CaffeineCapers offering average bonus packages in relation to the industry norm. The CaffeineCapers calculations are based on a Store Manager who has been with the company for 5 years and their store did not make over their allocated KPI. Taking into account the number of other circumstances in which managers can earn bonuses at CaffeineCapers they will have the capacity to take a market leading position throughout the financial year.As can been seen in the above table CaffeineCapers offers an above average hourly base rate. Annual wages offered by CaffeineCapers is above the market average and will create desirability for these management positions within the industry.Barista Minimum(AUD) Maximum(AUD) CaffeineCapersbonus $0.00 $102.94 $1,643.45wage annual $22,070.40 $39,106.55 $32,868.50wage hourly $12.10 $21.44 $18.02(PayScale. 2014)Graph B: Australian BaristaExplanation:The above graph displays where in the hospitality industry CaffeineCapers falls in regards to their pay and bonuses for Barista staff. They are paying above minimum industry standards but below maximum recorded amounts. This gives CaffeineCapers room to increase wages should they see fit. Maintaining this average balance within the industry creates more incentive for staff to climb up the hierarchy as their pay and bonuses gradually increase over the regular industry standards. This average amount creates room in the budget for CaffeineCapers to be more generous to their management staff. CaffeineCapers baristas receive more than 10 times the average amount.The above table indicates that CaffeineCapers offers an average hourly wage to their Baristas.Market SurveysIPSOS Australia are the leading specialists in market research and innovative systems. During annual budget evaluations it would be beneficial to enlist their services to conduct a variety of market surveys. These can be used to justify any changes to current pay rates and encourage CaffeineCapers to raise their wages and salaries if they are below the industry average. Human Resources can assist to develop surveys appropriate to the culture within CaffeineCapers and to ensure whatever the results are they correlate with the data available for collection at CaffeineCapers. (IPSOS Australia. 2014)Preliminary investigations can be done by running a generic market survey analysis through mediums such as PayScale which is available for free over the internet. Once the criteria have been entered you will be presented with information as follows.Restaurant Manager Salary (Australia)A Restaurant Manager earns an average salary of AU$50,844 per year. Most people with this job move on to other positions after 20 years in this career. Experience does not have a big impact on this job’s pay.Salary AU$40,545 – AU$60,887Bonus AU$0.00 – AU$7,250Profit Sharing AU$0.00 – AU$3,500Commission AU$0.00 – AU$1,350Total Pay AU$39,455 – AU$61,492(PayScale. 2014)Barista Salary (Australia)The average pay for a Barista is AU$17.43 per hour.

Store Managers are entitled to organise a Novated Lease with CaffeineCapers and their nominated fund. This can be done on any vehicle currently owned or to be purchased that is used for personal and business use. This is the only vehicle compensation that CaffeineCapers offers. The nominated fund supplies fuel cards and other perks. This agreement will allow the store managers to claim tax deductions and other monetary savings. (NLC. 2014)2. The CaffeineCapers profit sharing scheme is designed to encourage advancement and whole organisation performance. Payouts will be calculated and distributed from company profits only. This will apply mostly to upper levels of management and will be dependent on annual profit margins. Awareness of how profit sharing is calculated will be regularly distributed amongst the CaffeineCapers work community. (Masternak and Associates. n.d.)Barista3. Tipping: Tips will be distributed among store staff on a weekly basis and divided based on hours worked. To encourage tipping there will be advertising and encouragement from the store manager. (PayScale. 2014)4. These full time Barista’s are more likely to receive profit share bonus payments then their casual or part time counterparts. The more the whole organisation gets behind the expansion and branding of CaffeineCapers the more likely the profit share will reach lower level staff. (Masternak and Associates. n.d.)JustificationIncentive Justification Strengths Weaknesses LegalTipping This is an Australian hospitality industry expectation. All wage analysis surveys calculate the hourly tips per frontline staff member. Incorporating this into the culture of service at CaffeineCapers encourages these staff members to improve their customer service and focus on those most important to the business. Tax free and tangible representation of impeccable customer service.Encourages top performance.Encourages team work and support.Encourages innovative thinking to improve and create new methods of service. Can cause some disputes if all team members are not pulling their weight.Can be difficult to advertise and encourage without being pushy. N/ANovated Lease(NLC. 2014) These agreements open a wide avenue of incentives funded by the independent provider. Saving CaffeineCapers money in tangible incentives while providing a ‘full comprehensive’ incentive scheme to those in deserving positions such as management. No matter how much driving you do you save in FBT.Get to drive a relatively new car supported by work.GST and FBT savings to be made.Access to a large range of other free services.Bolsters Employer of Choice opinion by supporting key staff.(Smart Leasing. 2012) Vehicle under lease needs to be no more than 8 years old at the end of the contract.If staff member ends employment early they need to pay out the difference in their lease. Standard FBT (Smart Salary. 2014)Profit Share(Masternak and Associates. n.d) The essence of profit sharing is to bring an organisation together. Fostering an innovative culture within a business relies heavily on the support of all staff members. Using profit sharing as a vehicle to create this will assist CaffeineCapers in achieving its operational and strategic goals. an encourage staff to identify with organisation success.Encourage lower level staff to progress through the organisation to start receiving the extra bonus.Increases standard annual bonuses.Easily calculated and distributed.Allows rooms for addition incentive schemes where necessary. Payouts are made when there is profit not because there is an improvement in performance.Some employee groups will be excluded.No employee involvement in design process.Can’t stand alone as the only incentive scheme. Standard FBT (Business Law Today. 2014)Financial ImpactsTipping and profit sharing is dependent on how profitable CaffeineCapers is on a daily and annual basis. These do not impact on the expenditure for the business within the financial year. Any expenses incurred during the lease process are manageable and necessary expenses. The benefits of maintaining staff at the management level of employment out ways the cost of offering this form of incentive.Remuneration and Benefits Agreement and SupportThe most efficient way to introduce the R and B plan to staff members is during their orientation and induction programs. A preliminary introduction to highlight its existence and potential applications will make a smoother transition for the staff members when it comes to identifying how the Remuneration and Benefits Plan affects their individual performance. There should be two stages of agreement documentation:1. To be signed and acknowledge during their orientation and induction program to show a copy has been provided and the implications of the plan have been briefly explained.2. During their first performance review to acknowledge an understanding of how the R and B Plan affects their performance rating and what they can strive for in improving or maintaining their work performance.As discussed previously the planning, review and amendment process for this plan with be in line with the same structure as the Performance Management Process. This will ensure all changes are made in correlation with current employee requirements and demands. These classifications do not change how the Remuneration and Benefits Plan aligns with individual positions.Regardless of a Store Manager being classified as Supervisory position under the PMP and as such would have their performance measured based on Performance Factors that have be predetermined for their role and grow as CaffeineCapers expands their Strategic and Operational Goals.Or that the barista positionsare under the General Employee branch meaning their responsibilities and performance rely on key competencies for that role.
