How do I motivate my technicians in difficult times like this?
There is no doubt there are some challenging times ahead, with all the uncertainty in the world from all sides with your an employer or employee things have become chaotic. Most of your tech’s see the cost of living and the cost of fuel alone going up and up alone just for them to get back-and-forth to work Have gone through the roof, there’s no doubt this is affected them even when it comes to staying with you. If you’re treating you guys or (or girls) The very best and fairest way possible that’s a huge incentive for them to stay with you versus searching for greener pastures, even if you’re offering health insurance and covering a nice portion of it that’s a big option, but being in the same playing field with them probably goes the furthest. They would have to be crazy not to know your costs have gone up too but sometimes the stress is from home or does anything they may presume you’re dealing with. Think about incentive programs that are not going to break the bank, they can be everything from an employee event like a barbecue to a day out at an amusement park, sure these have some cost but the memory of this will last a great deal of time well beyond a possible looming recession. People don’t know you care until you show them that you do, it’s not something you can assume. I have a good friend Ryan from myguyplumbingnj.com And he has built an entire culture around keeping people motivated even having one of the best retainment rates in New Jersey. He is growing as a company exponentially and expect them to set this up in different areas as reputation in line with his position and branding have made him a market leader, and that’s before you even meet any of his guys and realize you have a high-quality and very reputable service doing work for you.

If they can believe in you, and you can show them that you’re in it with them for the long-haul you will win big!
