As long as you view laborers as “warm bodies” that is who will show up to work for you. In looking for quality help, you must start with the mindset that landscaping is a career. You need to look for people who want to be creative, but who also want to work outside - not in a cubicle, staring at a screen.
Our January meeting’s presenter will discuss traditional and non-traditional ideas for you to start implementing when looking for your next star employee. In many scenarios, it might seem like 2 out of 10 new hires are keepers. His goal is to help you start building a consistent pipeline of winners. Some of the concepts he will discuss include;
Building Your Presence & Reputation: How your business is perceived in the local community is what will it attract, repel, or have no impact on the quality of job candidates you see. Are you known for what employees want: positive association, a compelling future and the ability to contribute.
Solidifying Your Traditional Approach: It is smart to build an ongoing recruiting process through traditional sources such as state and local government agencies, as well as commercial sources like Craigslist, LandscapingJobs.com, etc. What’s even more important is a having a consistent presence with compelling hiring ads.
Going where no one else is going: While this can be high risk, it can also be high reward. He’ll discuss alternate places to look for a dependable workforce, such as; notifying your client base, using social media as an ongoing hiring ad campaign, initiating hiring contests, using Webscape to build candidate lists, visiting Interfaith communities - such as Hispanic churches - and more...
In the end, always keep in mind: Your growth plan is your employee’s career development path. Join us January 25th at St. Michael’s Woodside to learn more.
