Rest When You Want to Rest
To Stay Out of Cleaning, You Have to Over Prepare
Take Away Fear from the Equation
After understanding how this system of hiring works, Brian asked Mike what to do if you hire too many employees and don’t have enough accounts for them all. And what Mike recommends is that first, you celebrate. The goal is to get enough employees! Then, you tell those employees the truth. Rather than promising them things you can’t deliver, let them know that you are hiring them and that you can’t guarantee their hours. That they might only work 10 hours initially as you continue to build up your accounts and that as accounts increase, so will their hours.Similar to the way hospitals have float nurses that they call in case someone calls out, they will be your float cleaners for the first little while. The other part of this equation, as we talk about so much on the podcast, is to hire initially using the core values of your company so that you align in what matters from the start.
Final Takeaway: Rest when you need to, hire more people than you need, and tell your employees the truth about their workload.
