HELPING JANITORIAL BUSINESSES SCALE UP

November 13, 2019

One of the biggest challenges we face as cleaning companies is getting great people on our team and keeping them there. I can attest from personal experience that it is hard to retain top level talent in our organizations. What we have learned over the years is the need to create a cult...

As the CEO of a janitorial company with over 500 employees, I am convinced humility is the key trait leaders must possess, all skill-sets being equal. In fact, I would take a less-skilled, humble leader over an arrogant, highly skilled individual. But for all of our talk on humility, we...

This morning I had a phone call with the owner of a cleaning company who recently joined our mastermind group. Something he had struggled with over the last couple of years was trying to grow his business. Based on some advice he had received from a business consultant, he was attemptin...

Most managers and supervisors will not stay in their position forever. Some will quit, others will retire, and hopefully many will move up in the company. The inevitable consequence is that these positions will need to be filled. While some of these roles will be backfilled by hiring fr...

So I’ve been in the cleaning business for nearly 12 years and I’m ashamed to say that I just learned how cleaner turnover affects the amount of unemployment tax we pay. I had naively assumed each employee had a certain tax associated with their pay and this was fixed. Sure, the rate cou...
