Obama Prison Blues

Recommended Posts

I guess I'm the only one doesn't have a long term memory problem. The things Obama is blamed for ALL started well before his time. Two unfunded wars. Unregulated bankers and traders in search of ever increasing short term profits. Seems like the drunk driver who crashes the car and then trades places with the sober passenger. Oh, and let's not forget the outsourcing of middle-class jobs to any other country but here, leaving minimum wage/no benefit jobs. To be sure these problems were not all the fault of king george's regime, but they certainly are NOT solely the fault of President Obama. But there is no sense arguing with those who want so bad for it to be so that they will ignore the truth in order to live in the fantasy their party wants them to believe.

      It always amazes me when I hear about a technician who quits one repair shop to go work at another shop for less money. I know you have heard of this too, and you’ve probably asked yourself, “Can this be true? And Why?” The answer rests within the culture of the company. More specifically, the boss, manager, or a toxic work environment literally pushed the technician out the door.
      While money and benefits tend to attract people to a company, it won’t keep them there. When a technician begins to look over the fence for greener grass, that is usually a sign that something is wrong within the workplace. It also means that his or her heart is probably already gone. If the issue is not resolved, no amount of money will keep that technician for the long term. The heart is always the first to leave. The last thing that leaves is the technician’s toolbox.
      Shop owners: Focus more on employee retention than acquisition. This is not to say that you should not be constantly recruiting. You should. What it does means is that once you hire someone, your job isn’t over, that’s when it begins. Get to know your technicians. Build strong relationships. Have frequent one-on-ones. Engage in meaningful conversation. Find what truly motivates your technicians. You may be surprised that while money is a motivator, it’s usually not the prime motivator.
      One last thing; the cost of technician turnover can be financially devastating. It also affects shop morale. Do all you can to create a workplace where technicians feel they are respected, recognized, and know that their work contributes to the overall success of the company. This will lead to improved morale and team spirit. Remember, when you see a technician’s toolbox rolling out of the bay on its way to another shop, the heart was most likely gone long before that.
