Jack SchrockWithout a doubt, the most important single thing you can do to grow your business is to hire only “good” people. That means you should avoid cheap help because they are always looking for a better job and/or other ways to earn more money. The cheapie also is less skilled so their production is lower and damage to equipment greater. And they generally don’t project your favorable company image to your customers. Here today and gone tomorrow and in the process most everything they touched now needs repairing, including customer relations. Cheap help doesn’t pay, it costs dearly in so many ways.

It’s okay to bring in a younger person at the apprentice level at lower pay with the intention of developing them into a higher paid position over a specified period of time. In so doing you can also train them in equipment operation and maintenance, customer relations, billing procedures and, most of all, your company philosophy.

However, consider a profit sharing plan and stock option for long-term employees and you’ll be able to attract seasoned and skilled operators who will be with you for the long term. Competent, enthusiastic and loyal employees are your very best tools to a successful future.
