Just curious if anyone agrees with regards to the ERI. So here is the math formula: 1. Sups and Managers have a portion of their annual review based on the results of their operations ERI 2. Virtually ALL sups and MOST managers would agree they are powerless to run their operation as they want since the mandates come from IE, region, corp...etc 3. ERI is geared towards center and building level questions with very little input as to the current direction of the company It would tend to add up to the ERI being reduced to a paper game where front-line management has to sell a lemon they dont believe in. On a side note, had another management employee ask we if, ready for this, it was OK to take the ERI for the 11 people that were on (comp, leave, vacation) in order to show 100% participation. Of course I said no but i know he did so anyways. (and would you believe those 11 people just lovvvvvvvved their jobs). Maybe, just maybe, someday we will get someone in the ivory tower that wants the front line opinion of how we feel about the path the company is on, how "in tune" corporate is to the real world of UPS or why we continue to lose market share. Maybe us dumb ole ignorant grunts (management and hourly) might be able to help with the answers. But then again maybe its just me because over 90% of the employees according to our ERI think ALL IS WELL.
