Gatti's Pizza Pilots YouEarnedIt® Software to Engage Employees

Real-time Employee Recognition Program Encourages a Positive Culture

March 25, 2014 // Franchising.com // Austin, TX – In an effort to retain the best and brightest employees, Gatti's Pizza, a forty-two year old pizza brand known for their famous pizza throughout the Southwest, Southeast, and Midwest, is the first multi-unit pizza chain to partner with YouEarnedIt®, an award-winning employee recognition software startup. Gatti's Pizza uses the employee recognition program to encourage team members across multiple locations to practice a positive company culture.

Through a combination of peer-to-peer and top-down acknowledgement of all employees, especially critical front-line staff, the restaurant chain has taken the first step to realizing their goal of increasing retention rates and boosting customer service figures.

Last month, Gatti's Pizza partnered with its Round Rock franchise partner, Gatti's Management Group, and YouEarnedIt to launch an Austin-metro pilot program across 26 stores. These first 600 employees are pioneering this integrated solution, which will ultimately be rolled out across the entire 104-store franchise system, helping employees create a better work environment and foster a culture of recognition.

"We are so proud that Gatti's Pizza is the first multi-unit pizza chain to partner with the innovative YouEarnedIt employee recognition program. This is a strong partnership and will help us to nurture and retain our best people as we continue to grow," said Mr. Gatti's President Steve Burt.
