Having trouble finding employees? Here’s a clip from our recent podcast with Michelle Blevins from C&R Magazine where she talks about common mistakes restoration companies do when they have a hard time finding employees. But she also gives some very simple tips on how to find employees.
‘You can’t keep putting ads on Indeed and hoping that you’re going to find people. Please stop it. It’s not going to work. One of the most interesting techniques I have seen are, which again, I think most people have heard about this by now, but it’s like making business cards that says like you’re a service superstar or something like that on it, and then has the company’s info or whatever.
I know of several companies that actually require their team to give out maybe, like, five of them in a week to people that they meet when they’re going about their days. And then, you know, there’s no one else to better represent your company and bring talent to you than your employees.
One thing to you to be the owner or HR or whatever in recruiting people, but when your team is going out and saying, “Hey, your service was awesome today. This is the company I work for. We’d love to have you come work with us maybe, or like, give us a call for an interview.” That speaks volumes.’
