Last week our team was in Beaver Creek, CO for our annual ACE Summit, where we bring all of our ACE Peer Group Members and Alumni together for a week of learning, networking, and plenty of fun too.
While we were there, we spent a lot of time talking about the number one challenge our businesses are facing right now: finding and keeping team members. In the video below I share my top tip for finding and keeping team members:
It's no surprise to those of you who have been following us for a while: the best thing you can do to find and retain team members is to make your company a great place to work. And whether you're the owner or someone else in the organization, you have an impact on whether someone stays or leaves your company.
At Grunder Landscaping Co., we're constantly making changes to make our company somewhere where people are excited to work. Earlier this year we rolled out a new bonus program to reward our entire team when the company hits its goals, and this winter we're changing our vision and mission to be more team-focused. We realize that our people are the entire reason we're in business, and when we make everything we do about them we'll be more successful.
Come see it in action at our Grunder Landscaping Co. Field Trip on December 8-9, or for you last-minute folks we have a couple of spots still available this week. At the trip, we'll go into more detail on the structure of our bonus program and answer any questions you have about making your company a better place to work.
I hope to see you soon!
