Performance Management Workshop

Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall -Stephen R. Covey -

Managers are the main “Captains of the Ship”, as they say, and it is essential to establish a “system” that would help the “captains” to plan ahead and implement a guiding “map” of how and where to lead the team on their journey to success. 

Thus, the Yamanote Atelier’s Performance Management Workshop (PMW) is an avenue designed to equip our HODs, Outlet Managers, and Assistant Managers at the restaurant. The workshops’ aim was to focus on the effective conduct of performance reviews and appraisals and establish an effective performance management system (PMS) in the organization. 

The workshop also covered the importance of competency behaviours of each individual that contribute to the growth and success of both the company and the employees in achieving the vision and mission of the organization. The main workshop activities completed by the participants were creating SMART objectives, from mind mapping all the way to developing an Individual Development Plan (IDP). Techniques and tools were also introduced during the workshop, such as the GROW model as a coaching technique, effective listening skills and communication skills, and tips for handling staff poor performance. 

The full-day workshop was completed in two parts on July 14th & 19th, 2022. The workshop was attended by the Executive Chef, Catering and Events Manager, Head Bakers, Outlet Managers, and IT Asst. Manager, HR Officer, HR Coordinator, Senior Accountant, Accountant, and Supervisors of the Yamanote. Indeed, it was another full-packed fun-learning workshop and fruitful learning event with the support of our senior management!

Yamanote Atelier Restaurant continuously provides training to all its employees to establish an internal pool of trainers as we believe in the individual talents of each team member in different sections of the organization. In the requirement of developing effective and efficient employees from the starting days and day forward, the successful pool of trainers as certified will be very helpful to achieve this goal.

A Train-the-Trainer Program (T3) has been launched in two batches last June 8 and 13, 2022, respectively. The training was attended by selected employees from different sections in Outlet Operations, Central Kitchen, and Delivery Services, of various positions such as Outlet Supervisors, Waiters, Waitresses, Head Barista, Barista, Call Center Agent, Jr Sous Chef, CDP, Head Baker, and Bakers.

This training program served as one of the best tools for formulating qualified team members known as the “experts” to become internal trainers or Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in a specific section of the organization. This T3 program will be in support both existing and upcoming training activities in the future. By end of the fun-filled training activities, all the participants were certified as the “master” (tatsujin) trainers of their specific areas!

Baumkuchen Cake: Heartly Appetite for any Occasion

If you have ever tasted Baumkuchen cakes, you know freshly sliced Baumkuchen cake is one of the great culinary pleasures in life. The Yamanote brought this joy into their customer’s life by introducing “Ya Baum,” a brand-new pastry concept specializing in Baumkuchen cakes, a traditional German sweet and a popular dessert in Japan.

The Baumkuchen is nicknamed a “Tree Cake” because it resembles the rings of a tree. The most important reason for its name is that the cake is baked layer by layer on a wooden spit, call it a tree trunk, by an open flame. The batter consists of butter and egg York separated from the egg white. Then comes flour and a secret blend of the flavors. The egg whites are beaten, sugar is added, and it’s all mixed.

The unique concentric rings of the Baumkuchen are seen as a symbol of love, longevity, and prosperity; this makes the Baumkuchen a popular favorite at celebrations and festive occasions.

Yamanote makes its Baumkuchen with special equipment brought initially by Japan. Not many types of cakes have a bakery devoted exclusively to baking and selling Baumkuchen. But Yamanote, the Japanese Bakers, introduced this new concept to its customers by branching out to its sister company, Ya Baum.

Look at our most delicious authentic, lovely rings of the Soft and Hard Baumkuchen cakes made in a classical ambiance in an old-fashioned way. Each elegant ring is a piece of art, coated with the Chocolate, Matcha, Saffron, and Cheese, adding an extra layer of refinement.
