DLC Wins ISPI Award

In partnership with Canada’s largest integrated oil company, DLC has been awarded the Outstanding Human Performance Intervention Award by ISPI for their Merchandising Excellence program.  

The program’s goal is to increase sales through improved merchandising implementation at convenience stores across Canada.

Convenience store, car wash and fast food sales have become a top business priority at the Client company.

DLC partnered with the Client to design, develop and implement the required performance intervention.  The blended solution addresses leadership, performance gaps, motivation and sustainment.  It includes in-class workshops (Train-the-trainer, Territory Managers Workshop and Retailer Workshops), on-site store evaluations (using a standard evaluation tool), performance job aids, a site readiness plan and a monetary incentive program.

The business measured significant sales increases in the first year and continues to build on this program each year to sustain performance and sales levels at their sites.

The award ceremony took place at the 2007 International Performance Improvement Conference in San Francisco on May 3rd.
